    Just look up the Mays Landing phone number for your congressman and give Bill Carson a call. No need to panic.

    The NJ Senators have another round of interviews this week, I was lucky enough to have met the man who runs the interviews while I was waiting for my second interview, he said that we should expect to hear in the beginning to middle of January.

    Yeh he also said that NJ was one of the most competative states for getting a senatorial nom. high population density sucks.

    Actually you are better off from No NJ, b/c they tend to go the IVY route or Out of State, they have very little exposure to the SA's and military life. South Jersey has McGuire AFB, FT Dix, Monmouth, Earle, and then add in the USNA only 1 1/2 hrs down 95 plus Dover in Del., which means you have alot of military exposure, AD parents and retirees. However, with the moniker Flyersboy, I am guessing McGuire is somewhere you are familiar about. Remember the Sens don't care where in NJ you are from, just that you are from NJ! Good luck

    BTW Bullet and I were NJ natives, and actually married at McGuire

    Pima, Im way below McGuire, Im down below AC, Im done below OC. I love it way down here though :D

    Our congressman is very competitive to USMA and USNA but not so much USAFA, so I guess im lucky.

    See Im the opposite, I live about 5 minutes away from Mcguire and Ive grown up in a military lifestyle because both my parents are Air Force. And its not to different here, in fact, a lot of people disagree with the military where I live. Although, for my school, we have a lot of kids attending SAs. Ill be the fourth in two years. One to USAFA, one to USNA, and 2 to USCGA, including me.

    I recall someone on here ly that was from NJ, and if I recall correctly they did comp. It is not the norm to give a principal, most give comp. However, that doesn't mean they are locked into giving comp or principal every yr.

    Hi!

    We're from Jersey too. My son received a nom from Saxton, and interviewed with the senators people, but hasn't heard back. We are from southern Jersey. Flyersboy-just curious where are you from? Are you going to the CVW coming up?
