    I'm just wondering if anyone from IL got an appointment yet? My son has one nomination but no info from another senator.

    Congrats to you! I'm a current cadet from Illinois. Don't worry if you don't hear back from the other senator, you only need one nomination.

    My son is a member of 21014 and last year his congressman didn't even interview until after Christmas (Dist 11)

    Our congressman didn't do interviews this year. They said there were too many applicants so they went by the application/stats alone to decide who go the nominations.

    My DS received a nom from his congressman and Burris last month and today he received a letter from Durbin stating that "......I cannot nominate you, too, and still insure that all qualified candidates come to the attention of the academies......" I thought a candidate could get 1,2,3,4 nominations? Do some Senators not add qualified candidates to their slates if they already have a nom? Or, did my DS fall short of Durbin's slate? Or, could Durbin tell that my DS would get an appointment from the other MOC's so he didn't want to "waste" a space on him (hopeful thinking)?! Or....Or.....Or.....

    I, too, must come out of the closet and admit that I am a forum junkie! Thank God my DS is not......one crazy person in the family is enough.:shake:

    IL nom

    DS received the "fell just short" letter from Durbin. Sounds like in your case he did not want to duplicate noms with Burris. Best wishes to your DS.

    My son just got the denial from Durbin as well. He already has a Congressional Nom though.

    I'm so sorry to hear that your DS did not make it on Durbin's slate. I never imagined how "consuming" this whole process is. Did he receive his district nom? What about AFROTC?

    Yes, he has a congressional nomination already and has applied for AFROTC.

    DS did get congressmen's nom. Is also seeking AFROTC. He has wanted to be in the military since I can remember. Narrowed down his choice of branches to the Air Force by doing much research.
