    We recieved a call from our Congressman yesterday and he left a message congratulating or DD on being a new member of the academy.. Now this congressman just took over from the congressman that actually nominated our daughter.. Do Congressman have knowledge of who is making the academy before we get any BFE or status change?.. I'm thinking maybe it was a congratulations on just being a nominee since we never heard from the previous congressman.. but the nomination was way back in late Dec.. I'm just wondering if this congressman isn't up to speed on the nomination process and he thinks that if you get a nomination you are automatically in.. There was no number left to call back.. So My DD doesn't know what to think...

    Service academies notify the congress mans office to inform them of the appointment and they give them a week to notify the appointee. Expect a BFE in your mail box in the next week! Congrats to your DD!!!

    Did your DD have a LOA? Just curious if they are starting to do regular appointments now?

    We were also told by our ALO that they are notified a few days before the Congressman is notified so you could check with your ALO also.

    CGchris99.. No my daughter didn't have an LOA... She got her nom back in late Dec,, she didn't even know untill a postcard came from the academy saying she was nominated by her congressman.. We never heard anything else.. That is why yesterday's phone call was unclear really.. He just said congratulations on being a new member of the academy but she never got any phone calls or letters from the previous congressman so we didn't know if our new congressman was just playing catch up on the nomination or not.. She will feel better when the Big Envelope gets here I guess. Maybe she can relax then..

    Congratulations to you and your daughter!

    Anyone, please feel free to speculate....Does this mean the Academy is starting to send out the rest of the decisions?

    Since the application deadline passed now, they're probably starting to give out appointments to candidates with high Weighted Composite Scores on nomination slates. The majority of appointments will still be sent in March.

    Also, congrats dadof6! I would have the best day at school if I got that kind of news.
