    congrats!! it certainly is a good day for you..when you say that you are academically qualified, do you mean you received an LOA?

    No, I don't believe I have received a full LOA. The letter just said I was academically qualified and on "hold". From the people in my congressman's office I have talked to it sounds like the academy was waiting for me to receive a nomination.

    No, I am waiting out till may when I have a final decision from CGA. I can honestly see myself at either school as they both accomplish my goal and will leave it up to the admission officers on wether or not I have to make a choice between the two academys.

    either way you go you'll be pretty well set for life. just remember that neither school is designed to be easy, but before you know it you'll be getting ready to graduate and it'll be a blur. hang on... the wild ride is just about to begin.

    Quick question....If you recieve a Nomination where do you go from there? Do you have to notify the Admissions office or do the nominating reps take care of everything?

    The nominating source notifies the academy. The deadline for nominations is January 31st. Some members of Congress already have their nominations submitted, while others wait until the last minute.

    don't want to burst your bubble!

    Please don't take this the wrong way but I too, received the same letter...academically qualified...and nominations have not been submitted from my state yet. I called USMMA and they indicated that even if a nomination is received, it will depend on your ranking on the hold list to see if you get an LOA. Believe me - I hope your understanding is correct and I am incorrect!!!

    "Conditional" is a conditional appointment. Whatever the condition is (securing a nomination, completing the CFA, etc.), when that is fulfilled, it will become an appointment. That's what it was for us! You should be getting a letter, telling you what items still need to be completed.
    Congratulations!
