My son has a received nomination for West Point from his Congresswoman. He won't be able to visit West Point until the end of January. How much does that hurt his chances of getting in? Should he schedule his January visit now so that Admissions knows that he is really interested in attending West Point? He has a friend who is at West Point and he has talked to my cousin who went to West Point, so he knows a lot about West Point even though he has not visited it. Thanks for the help.
