    Today, my DS received a nomination to the USMMA from Senator Mikulski. As a reference for current and future applicants, here is the timeline:

    Interview: 11/11/11
    Date of Letter: 11/28/11
    Letter Received: 11/30/11

    His application status on the USMMA website now reads "Principal" since he had received an LOA in late October. We are all very happy.

    treeslug.... CONGRATULATIONS to your DS!!!!! :thumb: and welcome to the USMMA family :welcome1:

    You are in for an incredible journey!

    Last year we were in the same situation (2015 DS is doing fantastic.. and we are SOOO proud of him!) We heard about the SPRING OPEN HOUSE for NEW APPOINTEES and my husband and I flew out to NY (with DS) for that weekend. It was fantastic... it gave us a wealth of information that was so very important, as well as confirmed my son's decision to attend the USMMA. You might think about attending this spring... (a phone call to the school to find out when the weekend is would give you better info).
    Best of luck...
    and congrats!!! :smile:

    to Phill11

    Hey Phill11, Congrats to your DS and Welcome to the Kings Point family! :welcome1: As I've told others in your situation... I highly recommend looking into attending the Spring Open House for New Appointees. We did that last year and the info was great! DS "confirmed" his decision to attend- and hubby and I also learned a ton of info that we wouldn't have known otherwise. You will be getting a letter about it later... but it was recommended to us by a 2014 mom to get hotel prior to getting that letter. (you can call the school to get an exact date of when that will be). (hotels seem to fill up quickly).

    congrats again! :thumb:

    Thank you, we will definitely visit in the spring. He did an overnight last spring during our exploring phase and look forward to returning.
