Hi all. It's getting to that time of year when we start getting antsy. I received my nomination, got an updated transcript sent in, and now I'm playing the waiting game. I have a couple questions, though. 1. Has anyone in Illinois revived an appointment yet? ( I'm sure someone has, but I'd like to hear from you!) 2. When should I expect to hear for the academy? When did you hear your status? 3. Does a congressionally nominated candidate take longer to hear back than someone with another nomination source? 4. Is there anything I could do to help the admissions staff with my file? 5. I was invited for a CVW last year, and was happy to go. Is it possible to go on another this year? (Slightly unrelated, but I loved mine!) Thanks for your time!
