    Are appointments given out in a specific order? For example, first for recruited athletes, LOA's, then MOC, and then NWL, ROTC, Presidential, etc?

    If so, what is the order and where in that process are they now?

    There is no specific order. In fact you don't know who you are slated to, and the academy doesn't necessarily know who your slated to until the process is done. They are always rejiggering to get the best possible class together (where best can mean many things).

    Thanks for this! My DS received calls from three congressmen informing him of his appointment. He was thrilled with all the calls but we've wondered whose slate he received the appointment from. Now it makes sense.

    Yeah! You may never know which one he was slated to, but they all like to take credit.
