    I got a phone call from Annapolis yesterday and an officer told me that he had a couple questions for me. He proceeded to ask me if I had toured and if I was accepted, if I would attend.

    I told him I would and that Navy was my first choice and he responded by saying that they would like to offer me a letter of assurance and to apply to the VP to raise my chances of getting a nom. Is this an official LOA? Will I receive anything in the mail? I have never heard of an LOA coming via phone before.

    Congrats! Yes it is. You should get the hardcopy in the mail within the next two weeks. I think thats how most people are getting their LOAs this year

    Be sure to apply for the VP nom. It will help them out in slotting you. Congratulations.

    Apply for every nomination you're eligible for, even if you already have one. You'll help the academy, and you might help another candidate by freeing up a slot for a senator or congressman.

    Perhaps not. It's much later in the cycle and early decisions elsewhere are coming out. Time could be of the essence here, especially with the holidays coming up and the amount of elapsed time routine paperwork will take.

    NO this is NOT an official LOA, this is a conversation about an LOA.

    Hoepfully you did get a name and the officers contact information so that you can call back with any follow up questions. I agree, conversations are good but it's always nice to have something in hand.
