Has anyone from Massachusetts received an appointment for USNA?
whew....thought we missed out on something when I read MASS 2014 appointment. Was happy to read it was the state, not a slew of appointments. I guess our house is on edge over this appointment process!!
Yup, I am from Mass with an appointment.
What school/ where are you from in MA. I am also from Mass.
I live in the metrowest but i go to Boston College High School
dmaster0300, congratulations! Go Massachusetts! I'm from Melrose but currently living abroad.
Either way, though, I'm not even in high school yet...so no, I have not received an appointment. Looking forward to hear if there are other MA appointments offered!
congrats dmaster0300 - what district are you in and who nominated you and when did you actually get the appointment ? Asking since my son got his district 10 nomination back in early Jan, but have not heard anything since..
I was nominated by Congresswoman Tsongas. I received an LOA in December, and then an appointment in the second week of January. Where are you from? best of luck with everything...
We live in Wemouth and got nomination from Congressman Delahunt
I know you probably have already done this - but, please be sure to stay in touch with Ms. Kim Arouca. She does a super job assisting students through the nomination/appointment process...almost too good a job - considering how many applicants to Massachusetts Maritime Academy I lose to the USNA who come from the 10th Congressional District!
I wish you well through this process.
I believe we have corresponded before....so are you saying that I can call Kim and ask her if they have gotten any appointments to USNA from his district ? I have spoken with her before about other matters regarding nomination,etc, just not sure if want calls bothering her about this process.
And if they have already appointed soemone from the district would that be the end for my son ?
Sorry - guess I did not recognize your nickname...no need to share your real name on this open format - I am sorry if we have shared email before and did not realize who you were.
Yes, please do contact Kim/Delahunt's office. If you have her email address - I'd recommend using that first.
If she knows anything - she will share with you. If she doesn't - she will tell you.
You may also have already talked with your child's B&G officer to see if they have any info to share with you.
The Service Academies will do their first selection - looking to try to be representative of all facets of diversity - geographic, gender, race/ethnicity in offering appointments. They will also review any nominees with particular key items - such as recruited athletes.
Once they sort out that first appointment review...the Service Academies will then go an find the most qualified nominees nation-wide...and that is where the 10th Congressional district wins - and I lose.
There have been several years where multiple 10th district nominees have been offered service academy appointments. I think that is a great indication of the volume and quality of the nominees that come from our district - and in Kim's effort in assisting students interested in a service academy go through this difficult process.
Feel free to contact me anytime you have questions.
Still waiting, I'm in the 16th district.
Sorry thats 6th district not 16.
who did you get nominated by MOC ? and were there 10 nominated and did they specify prinicpal candidate? Did you receive any letters from USNA (LOA, etc)...my son did not...
He got nom from Congressman Tierney, we do not know if he recieved principle nom. We never thought to ask. No LOA, only recieved academically qualifed months ago.
