Hi all! A month or two ago I received an invitation to attend a CVW and gladly accepted. To my understanding CVW invites for the most part are sent out to candidates that USNA deems competitive. A few weeks later, I received a phone call from a Lieutenant reminding me to get a recommendation ASAP as he said I was on the verge of receiving an LOA due to the strength of my file. A few days ago, a good buddy of mine got an LOA much to the surprise of himself and his family. I couldn't help but feel happy for him as he was absolutely ecstatic! I asked him if he was going for a CVW but he knew nothing of it which I found strange. After hearing news of his LOA, I anticipated receiving notification of one each day upon coming home, however, nothing from the academy. I know that the vast majority of USNA mids never receive LOA's and this is the norm, the appointment is most important. I was just surprised not to have not heard from the academy after the CVW invite and the phone call. I also understand that attending a CVW neither helps nor hurts your file. At the moment, the only component of my application missing is the CFA and a nom the latter of which I'm stressing out about!...haha I was just looking for any insight from this extremely helpful community regarding this situation. Could I still receive an LOA or have they all gone out at this point? I understand that they can give you an advantage in the nomination process and I happen to live in an extremely competitive area. Looking forward to hear what you guys have to say about this!
