So, here’s my question, my DS and another candidate from the same HS both received nominations to USMA from the same MOC. I don’t know anything about the other candidate academically, her leadership experience but I know she runs track. However both her parents are West Point graduates (neither one remains in the service). How much will her parents’ past with West Point benefit her over my DS at this point? She has not applied for any other NOMs as far as we know as she started the process late and missed the deadlines for the senator NOMs. My DS hasn’t heard from the senators yet to see if he has any other nominations but we don’t expect any as our area coordinates NOMs to ensure the greatest number of candidates receives nominations. Any insight is helpful. Thank you.
