My son applied to West Point, but did not receive a nomination from any MOC. He received a letter from WP (in March?) saying that he was qualified but needed a nomination. He has not received any other communication from WP. He has moved on to plan B: he was fortunate to have received a 3-year ROTC scholarship, accepted it and is preparing to attend that college. Today he received a letter in the mail saying that he has received a nomination from Vice President Biden. The letter is dated May 22. He checked his WP file status, and it says it was updated May 11 with the VP nomination information. We are now confused: the VP nominations are controlled by the academy itself, right? Why would they wait until so late? If they want to offer him an appointment, why hasn't anyone contacted him since May 11? If they do not want to offer an appointment, why bother with the nomination? On Monday we can get in touch with admissions office, but in the meantime I thought I would ask if anyone has had an experience like this? What does it mean?
