    I noticed on my DS portal that he has the GA-08 Nomination listed twice. Is that a typo/mistake or does it mean something else?

    It is possible that your MOC has two openings at the Academy. Each MOC is allowed 5 cadets at each Academy at any one time. Most years they will have one slate of 10 nominations for 1 opening. But occasionally each MOC will have two slates of 10 nominations each if they have 2 openings at the Academy. This can happen if two cadets from the same nominating MOC have graduated in the past year or if one or more cadets quits for some reason or some combination of these scenarios. If your MOC has two openings, it is possible that your DS has received a nomination slot from two different slates. If true, this is great for him as it provides two possibilities to get an appointment. I would check with either the MOC's office or Admissions to see if your DS has 2 nominations from GA-08.

    Let us know what you find out. . .

    Im from GA-08 and Hon. Austin Scott does have two slots available. It is possible you were nominated for both slots, but I was told by the woman in charge of the nominating committee that Austin Scott nominated 20 people. Perhaps it was a typo

    The other weird part is that there are 2 different dates for the nominations that are three days apart. DS said he'd contact the Congressman's office for info and I'll post and update with the answer

    Slots for each Academy

    I was just wondering if anyone from GA-08 knows how many slots for USAFA, USNA, and USMA does our Congressman Scott have available for appointments this upcoming year 2012-2013?

    My DD received two nominations to the Military Academy at West Point and one to USAFA from MOC Scott, but we have yet to hear anything on any of the nominations. The waiting is the worst part.

    Applying for Class of 2017

    My DS will be applying for class of 17, when should he start sending out nomination request letters? We also live in Ga but in another area.

    Your DS should check the website of both of your senators as well as your Congressional Representative. The websites will have details about timing, what is required, where to send the information, contacts, etc.
