    My son just received a phone call from Senator Bill Nelson's office. He received a nomination from him to West Point!!
    He also received a nomination from Congressman Connie Mack and has his nomination from JROTC!

    Congratulations to him and best wishes. The academies prefer his situation as it permits them some flexibility in deciding which nom to use to bring him aboard.

    Congrats!

    I also interviewed (for AFA) with Senator Nelson but heard nothing today. Guess thats not a good thing. My congressman does not release his until late December and I interviewed with Senator LeMieux too so I gotta keep the faith....

    Keep the faith, maybe Senator Nelson hasn't called everyone yet and they started with West Point and haven't done AFA yet. Good luck.

    Congratulations to you and your son cjs! I have not received any notification of whether or not I have received a nomination or not. :frown: I hope they're still working on them.

    I also believe that you should keep the faith. You do not know the inner workings, for example, maybe last week M-W, they worked on updating the files for the USMA, T-F for USNA, M-W of this week for USCGA and T-F for USAFA. If they had 70 applicants, it is not as if they contact the 10 that they nominate and throw the other 60 in the circular filing cabinet. They notify each list and create files for them. Typically, it is a staff, but you are not speaking about 20 people, but a few that are less than the amount of fingers you have. The MOCs must also keep their own records, but at the Pentagon there is an office for each branch dedicated to each SA. Now add into this that this same office has to work with the SA admissions office. So as you can see, there is alot of paperwork that goes with each candidate, or in other words man hours.

    KEEP THE FAITH until you know for a fact that you didn't get one.

    2 yrs ago there was a poster on here who applied for the AFA from our state, he interviewed the same date as our DS. He received the "at this time" letter 2 days before our DS. We received the "congrats" letter. You do not know how the inner office works.
