    So I got a call from my senator (Bayh-IN) and he said i've been appointed. So I guess i'm curious about who i'll be spending the next 4 years with.

    Nope nothing yet! I looked on all of the NOM deadlines and they don't announce until the end of December! It's completely brutal! And thanks I'm really excited about the LOA, congrats to you as well! Maybe we'll be seeing each other!

    Fingers Crossed!

    Alright, thanks.

    How long after you complete your file do they give you a decision? because the congressmen in california havent even started preliminary interviews yet >< so i have no idea what i'm supposed to be sitting around for now

    Each MOC has until January 31, 2011 to submit their nominations to the Academy. Some interview, some don't. My DS had an interview with his Congressman but not with either Senator. Only a staffer at the MOC's office can tell you when the MOC will finish with their selection process.

    As far a what you are supposed to do in the interim, I believe the term you need to become more familiar with is "hurry up and wait".

    Congrats to all of you guys (or girls)!!! Now for the fun part, waiting to go to the academy. I get to wait two years to apply! Talk about a long wait :yllol: But I get the luxury of making sure I am doing everything I can to make my application look better for when I apply.

    Good luck to all. Take it as an early christmas present (or late Chanukah present). :thumb:
