    Has anyone heard anything from Senator Mark Kirk's office? DS learned Kirk is not doing interviews this year (too many applicants). DS received a "no" letter from Senator Durbin's office in early December.

    Anyone else waiting to hear from Congressman Danny Davis (IL-07)?

    My DD is also awaiting a response from Senator Kirk. She called his office last week and was told she would receive a response before the New Year.

    Thanks - I will repost here when we hear -- same for you, hopefully? Appreciate the support, altho it seems far more likely for a congressional than a senatorial with all of these apps....

    What academy(ies) is your DD applying to? DS is applying to USNA.

    You are welcome! I will let you know if we hear anything and thinking good thoughts toward you DS with both congressional and senate nominations. It seems like the waiting is the hardest part.....

    My DD applied to USMA.

    Did your DS portal change the other day to show his medical qualification status? My DD portal changed all of a sudden to show medical status(qualified Oct 2011), we don't know if it is good or bad

    DS's USNA portal has always just said: "For information regarding your medical exam or status please visit the DODMERB website" (which does show his Qualified status, posted a day after he took the exam). Not sure how it works with USMA but it would seem better that it is reflecting Qualified than nothing at all!

    Good luck!

    I received a letter from Rep. Biggert (13th) saying that she is not nominating me because Kirk plans to, but I have not heard anything from Kirk yet. However, I received a nom from Durbin so I was wondering if Biggert meant to say Durbin instead of Kirk. But I also have not heard from Kirk yet.

    Congrats on the Durbin nom. Which SA(s) are you applying to?

    I thought I read somewhere that our senators compared notes and didn't duplicate noms (same as our congressman) but maybe not, so good luck with Kirk too!

    Thank you. I am applying to the Air Force Academy. I was under the impression that they all talked too, so I am not expecting another one.

    On a whim, DS checked his USNA portal today and saw that he received a nomination two weeks ago, altho he has yet to be notified by Senator Kirk's or Congressman Danny Davis' office (which is the likely source).

    Nomination Source; State; District; Date Received
    Congress/Senator 2; IL; 28-DEC-2011

    Not sure what the "2" means? Also, the box for "district" was blank.

    Anyone else hear from Kirk or Davis?

    Turns out DS's nomination was from Senator Kirk. Figured that out last week (thanks to forum members who deciphered the "code"; i.e. the "2" meaning the junior senator, and no district number listed) but finally received the official letter today (dated 1-18).

    Congressman Davis (IL-07) is still "processing."

    DS received a "no" from Durbin and a "yes" from Kirk for USNA. Reading thru the paperwork, it looked like no duplication was possible but who knows.

    Any updates on IL nominations? TWEs? BFEs? Any one getting any feedback from their academy?
