    Has anyone heard from Congressman Mike Bishop MI-08 reference nominations for class of 2020? Or nominations from Senator Gary Peters?

    My DD has a nom from district 4. Not from Peters. We have not heard anything on appointment. We did get a letter back from Peters though saying she did not get a nom from him. I think MI MOC do not like to give out duplicate noms to candidtates they know have other noms.

    I heard that too about MI senators communicating so as not to nominate the same candidates. Thanks

    I'm from MI-04 as well. Got noms from Moolenaar for USNA, USMA, and USAFA. I received my appointment to USMA a few weeks ago - no word from the other two Academies yet. I got the same letter from Peters stating I got no noms from him.

    Is USNA your DD's first choice or only one she is interested in? Best of luck to both of you!

    When you say noms from both, who do you mean? What city are you in?

    I guess I should have quoted your initial post - noms from both Senator Peters and Congressman Bishop.

    My son got noms from kilde for USMA, USNA and USAFA, and got two noms from Stabenow for USMA. He received an appointment to USMA in middle of January. He did not get a nom from Peters either, and Peters didn't publish his nominations, which leads me to believe he gave a limited number of nominations, and doesn't want people to know how he is gaming things. I have little respect for that, but it is what it is.

    It doesn't look like there has been much activity with Michigan candidates at USNA. I sure wish USNA would make decisions soon so son can make his choice. As it is, he is leaning West Point, but also likes the Navy/Marine options, so USNA still being evaluated.

    Plenty of noms for your son Brovol and at least he has USMA in the bag. Good luck to him!
