What's with all the conflicting information?
Hello, members of this wonderful forum.
I recently received a nomination from Senator Isakson of Georgia.
(Awaiting word back from Rep. Westmoreland)
I have been an anxious wreck for the past month now. I just want to hear back from West Point.
The information in question arises from when I found the list of nominees from Senator Isakson. He had THIRTY-SEVEN appointees from who-knows how many nominations. 11 of them were appointees to West Point.
I thought each Congressman could only send a total of 10 nominations??? And if not, how many nominations can they grant?
I have been using my knowledge of Statistics (thanks Coach Parker!) and calculated that, being Triples Q'd and nominated, that by being a white male, I have roughly a %33 chance of appointment. However, if Senator Isakson seems to have appointees of every nomination he sends in, then the %33 figure looks closer to %65-%75. I can not seem to find a number of nominations he sends out, only the list of appointments.
If anyone could answer any of these questions, it would be much appreciated the calm these anxious nerves:
1) How many nominations can a congressman award?
2) Although I understand that some districts are more competitive than others, if I am 3 Q'd and nominated, what would you guess is an estimated percentage of appointment?
3) When are the majority of appointments awarded? Are most of them mid-May, or closer to the January-March range?
4) Can a student with 2 varsity letters, an NHS and JROTC (honor unit with distinction) member, 40 community service hours, a 10/10 employer evaluation, a 4.2 weighted (3.9 unweighted) GPA, and a 680-680-580 SAT score look competitive?
