Good luck to him. Hope he can make it. Have met a few West Point grads and, well, lets just say that will always look good on the resume.Just thought I'd provide a quick update for those that took the time to answer my questions. So my son did get an interview with Jordan's "team" and that took place a few weeks ago. He was very happy with the interview and completely satisfied with his answers and conversations with the interview team. So regardless of what happens, he walked away believing he did his best. In the meantime, he received a letter from West Point inviting him for an overnight visit. I don't think that letter necessarily means much in terms of the interview, I'm guessing that maybe any candidates who got an interview might have received the same letter? So now it's a waiting game to see if he receives a nomination. And also time to focus on plan B.
I know many prefer officers who are enlisted first and then make the switch.
