    Does anybody know how long it takes for nominations to show up on the USMA portal? Had the interview about two weeks ago and was notified on Thursday. Thanks

    sorry about the typo in the title

    Mine showed up the day I was notified. Then again, I was notified on January 31st, the last possible day. Anyway, probably soon, but I wouldn’t worry about it. Congrats on the non!

    DS '21 had to follow up several weeks after receiving his nom - there was a snafu at MOC office.
    Then person he emailed at MOC was no longer there - had to go thru a new contact.
    All ended well but thank goodness he was proactive [I may have prodded him a bit . . .]

    If portal does not update in 2-3 weeks max by all means check with your admissions liason.

    Remember that MOCs have until 1/31 to submit their slates to the SAs. It being an election year, more MOCs than usual may end up pushing close to the deadline — just my guesss.

    If you know for a fact that you’ve received a nomination, then makes sense to want it posted on the portal sooner rather than later. But if you don’t know, then expect that your MOC is using the time allotted.

    You are right @MidCakePa.
    My Ds got an email from his Congressman office that due date to submit the application has been extended to Nov 15 from Oct 26. Also, interviews are expected in mid January. This is the only last but very critical step that we all are looking forward to. But, hey... wait and breath :bounce1:

    My DS got all 3 noms. They all had a 9/30 application cut off date. This is how it went down.
    Sen A. No interview. Notified by MoC Dec 18th. Portal Dec 23rd.
    Sen B. Notified last week of Dec. for an interview the 1st Sat of Jan. Received congrats letter by Weds. Showed on his portal a few weeks later.
    Cong. No interview. No Congrats letter, showed up on the portal last week of Jan.

    Just saying, even in 1 state, it can vary greatly when and how the MoCs notify.
