    Just wondering if anyone from MA has heard back yet. I know for a fact that Kerry's office has their nom's picked and they are only interviewing those 10, but I havent heard from Sen. Brown's office or my rep Ed Markey.

    I'm a different district than you, but Senator Brown did interviews in November and I know someone who heard back from his office on probably getting a nomination from there. I don't know if they had finished his slate though

    Hi I live in Andover actually (Tsongas, 5th district)... this is one subject i have been dying to hear about...
    my situation thus far: LOA to all 3 academies, waiting on a nomination to make it official.

    bjschick: where did you get your information from to know the situation with kerry's nominations? I am asking because I have been called by their office to set up interviews and im just want to what it means (I heard that getting interviews from kerry's office is VERY competitive)

    with regards to the brown situation, im in the same boat.. i interviewed with their office in october, nothing heard yet from them. The congressperson situation is the same, i finished interviewing recently, no decision yet.

    Just wanted to shout out to all MA applicants, lets keep one another posted on the nomination situation so we can save ourselves some anxiety and stress...

    Good luck to everyone!

    Yea like I said, I only know one kid who's applying to USNA that heard back from Senator Brown's office which I believe was to let him know that he receieved a nomination.

    I also got a call from Kerry's office, but I received my appointment to USMA and have accepted it that I will be calling to let them know that I don't need the nomination.

    thunderbird12: I will send you a PM on Kerry's office, but I am sure on what I said. I wouldn't worry about Brown's office, I interviewed with them in August and will actually be starting an internship there in January and know they haven't done anything official yet with their nominations. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't hear until mid January with all the craziness in the Senate right now with the lame duck session and Obama trying to push through New START before Dec 31. Good luck to everyone! If anyone has info on their status, TELL US!!! Hopefully MA has a dominant presence at the USAFA this fall!!!

    Congrats on the Nomination!

    We got one from Kerry as well. It is a very competive year and most kids will not have multiple nominations so just be greatful you have one. Good luck and let's hope MA will be well represented this year at the USAFA!
