I received a congressional nomination, but I did not receive the principal nomination. The person that did already received an appointment and accepted it. Does this mean that I will be put into the national waiting list to compete against everyone else? How many people are chosen from this list? Should I give up hope on being accepted to West Point? P.S. my file is pretty competitive but my hinderance is a 1390 sat score. Top of my class of 505 and lots of sports, clubs, and some decent leadership.
