    Got notified by Bob Doehl today that I was nominated competitively by Senator Mark Begich! Yay! That's one step of the process cleared. :biggrin:

    I'm hoping the rest of you are getting news about your nominations too, and I wish you all a merry Christmas! :)

    Is USAFA your first choice?

    Yep! Now I'll just have to see if I get accepted by the Academy.

    Which SA is your first choice, eh?

    Soldotna for me. I know a girl in Kodiak was interested, but I don't know where she's at in the process. :)

    I'm from Anchorage bowl also. It seems like the AFA is really popular in Alaska, four kids from my high school have applications open with AFA!

    High School

    Which High School do you go to? My daughter goes to Bartlett. As far as we know there's only her and one boy applying this year from there.

    Did your daughter also receive a UA Scholarship? My DD was the UA Scholar for her school in Soldotna. I sat next to "johnathan's" mom. When we were talking about our kids future plans, she mentioned that there was a girl named M-----, who was working hard to get into the AFA? Wouldn't that be cool if they both got in?

    She was a UAA scholar recipient but we didn't go to the ceremony.Knowing the amount of energy and dedication it takes for these kids to even be competitive, I'd love to see them both get in! She found out November 1st that they'd given her an appointment and I think she cried for a week afterwards. This was always her goal but she didn't think she'd actually make it! Good luck to your DD I'm hoping that LOA is in the mail! My DDs name doesn't start with M, but I'm hoping M makes it as well!

    ERHS just down the block. AFJROTC is huge here.

    I don't think anyone here at ERHS has an LOA though :)

    When your DD got her appt, did she get a phone call, or was she notified by mail?


    You are so right, these kids work so diligently I would love to see them rewarded. Even if DD doesn't get in, I know she has discovered so much about herself and what she can do. Just the application process is valuable. I applaud anyone who takes this journey!

    Phone

    They called her November 1st at 7:30 in the morning. She was in the pool for early decision and was eligible for the Presidential nomination because my husband was AF for 26 years. We know one other child in Florida who got the same call. It seems like most others the portal changes first and then they get the letter. This process is certainly one people don't understand if they don't watch their child go through it! DD worked with a personal trainer to pass the CFA as she had no upper body strength. I thought it was impossible!
