I am 3Q and nominated. I got a voicemail today from my congressman in which he informed me that I received an appointment from West Point! While I am extremely excited, I have a few questions. Firstly, I figured I would hear from the academy itself about an appointment rather than my congressman: do congressmen/women hear about their nominees' appointments before the nominees? And has anyone else found out about their appointment this way? My congressman did say that I will be contacted by West Point very soon, but I would just like to be sure that this is an official form of acceptance/appointment before I begin to celebrate. Thank you!
