USMA National Wait List

Does anyone have current information on how the NWL process works or has worked in rececent years, as most threads are older than 2013. What are the actual odds of getting an appointment off the NWL? Thanks!

All candidates who have a nomination but who did not win the congressperson’s/senator’s slates are put on the NWL. Federal regulations dictate that 150 candidates on the NWL can be appointed using other nomination sources. Until the applicant receives a TWE (rejection), they are still in the game and just need to wait. It ain’t over til it’s over.
