If a cadet/parents to a different state after a DS starts at West Point is there any impact on the cadet's situation (i.e. slots available to each congressional source issue?)? Or is it a case of once a cadet is in West Point, they are in without consideration to the state or congressional district (or both) from which the nominations were received. I presume this situation happens often (job relocation, family matters, etc.). Thanks in advance.

No, there will be no impact. They remain charged to whatever source WP uses.

As stated by NavyHoops, no impact.
Just one question: Will you be informing your Cadet about your new address? That would be awkward, when he shows up for Thanksgiving and there is a totally different family living in the house he grew up in.

Hahaha! My parents did that! They moved when I got stationed in Okinawa and they never sent me the address. I kept asking and it took them like 3 months!

Good one! Yes, I expect we will inform him. He currently as an appointment to USCGA so crossing all our appendages for the others including WP where he has 3 nominations. Lots of other candidates and parents doing lots of waiting also it looks like....

Thank you. Our US Rep called our son on 17 Jan 2017 to say he is getting an appointment to WP. Very thrilling phone call for a 17 year old to receive.

And last night, DS got a personal call from one of our senators congratulating him on his WP appointment. Hope others have gotten/will get the same call.

lol dude, the same situation.
Welcome as a very new member.

This thread dates from 2017, and it is likely that poster is no longer active. Lots of great threads to browse, but keep an eye on the date, especially if you are asking a question.

Don’t overlook the Sticky posts located at the very top of forums such as Nominations and DODMERB.
