So I'm from Texas, and my senators are John Cornyn and Ted Cruz. Cornyn's application for a nomination was due October 7, and while I did get it in on time, I'm afraid that I may not have followed the guidelines properly. On Cornyn's form it says "The following items are all required and must be sent in one complete mailing... Incomplete applications will not be considered for nomination." One of the items listed is the official copy of my high school transcript. Problem is, when I talked to my school registrar, she refused to give me a copy of my official transcript, and insisted on mailing the transcript to Cornyn directly from the school, even when I explained that I needed to send everything all at once. She claimed she wouldn't give it to me because it would be "too easy" for students to forge their transcript. I included a note in my application explaining that my transcript was sent via the school, but I'm not sure if this would hinder my chances of getting a nomination, because I didn't follow the directions exactly. If anyone on here is from Texas and has had experience with applying to John Cornyn, I'd like to know if it's okay that I didn't include my transcript in my application packet. I was going to email his academy nominations coordinator about this, but didn't get around to it. I'd just like to stop worrying about this situation for now. Thanks in advance!
