    DS received BFE today! He had Principal Nom. and had heard from MOC that it was on its way! Incredible journey. This forum has really helped educate my family on this process. Thanks.

    How long did it take once it was up on his portal? Going on 6 weeks for my DS. He got principle nomination. I have been hearing 4 weeks.

    BFE

    He heard about Principal Nom. right before Christmas--was told BFE was on its way last week--arrived today. 3-4 weeks from Nom to BFE.

    Did the actual congressman call or someone in the office? BTW, what state are you in?

    Congrats! I just bundled up at 7 pm in the middle of a major snow storm here in CT to re-check the mailbox that was empty at 5 pm. My twin sons (one of whom is waiting to hear from Navy) are expecting word from multiple schools any day now. Tough times for the mailbox sentry with no mail yesterday due to the holiday and no mail today due to the snow!

    In CA--our MOC has an Academy Liaison---all contact with MOC has been through his SA liaison(except the phone call telling him he had earned the Principal Nom)-- she sent my son a text early last week telling him appointment was going in the mail that week.

    Touched by the snow storm here too (PA)! BFE arrived today for DS. He received nomination letters 1/10 Senator and 1/11 Congressional, and a few days later received a telephone call from the Senator's office stating the Academy confirmed with them his appointment.

    gmemgoch,

    What district in PA? I was under the impression PA senators and congresspeople collaborated to spread out nom's. DS has a Congressional, sadly not a principle one. And...congratulations!

    Striker,

    Here in PA you can get a nomination from both your senator and congressman. I know because it happened to my teacher's son a few years ago (and he had an LOA). While that's good for people like me who do not have an LOA or principle nom, it does sort of take away the "fairness" because people w/ LOA's could get multiple noms when they only need one. And then those extra noms could've gone to someone else. But that's just how it is. Btw I'm district 16

    mdn18,
    Thanks. My surprise stems from PA MOC's directly telling us that they collaborate to nominate as many as possible, and not cross-nominate...even the republican congressman's liason talks to the democrat senator's people. Best of luck. We're in District 15.
