    We are in Missouri-05. Still waiting. I saw someone got Offer, but it wasn't accepted. Any updates? Who else from our State has gotten Appointments?

    My DD was rejected in district 2. There has been another appointment for district 2 and I also saw one each from districts 5 and 8 (don't know if any of them accepted)....but that's all from Missouri I've seen on this forum. Good luck!!!

    I saw those. I think the one who got Appointment in 5 also got AFA appointment & had multiple nominations...so not sure if Appointment came from Senator or Congressman. So was wondering if they picked AFA?

    If you live in district 5 I'd say your chances of nomination are pretty good. I live in district 2 and congresswoman Wagner said she got 44 applicants. Assuming she has a slot open at each Academy, that's 30 nominations out of 44. And 02 is probably the most populous/competitive district in the state.

    Don't rule out KC or Columbia areas.

    You are assuming that all 44 candidates were spread equally between the different academies. One academy may have had only 3 applicants for instance while another could have had 30 looking for noms. Wagner's nomination coordinator told my Ds that they had considerably more applicants than most years-more than 60-but that must have been the initial applicants not the ones who completed files. I was surprised the number was so low as I assume we are the most competitive district for the state. On a side note, Ds did not get a nomination from either senator but he got a card from blunt yesterday anyway congratulating him on his appointment. It sounds like all of the MOCs must be informed who has been offered/accepted an appointment at this time.

    Saw this thread and had to chime in!
    DS received his appt to USMA! We found out almost a month ago. MO District 8.

    So proud of all of our kids - what an amazing accomplishment! Congrats to all - and best wishes to those that are still waiting to hear!

    Now I have to figure out how to be a Navy and Army Mom! DS #1 is enlisted Navy, currently serving on the USS Whidbey Island. They have an Uncle who is a USNA grad, and great Uncle who is a USMA grad. (1961!) And their Dad started his career in the Navy, then switched to the Army. Lol...so we're keeping it in the family!

    Someone find me a Navy/Army hoodie!

    I've posted several times that my DS received an appointment with an LOA in September and nomination from District 7 Missouri in December.

    Do you mean KC candidate still has a good shot? We are KC. District 5. I have figured out an Offer went out for our district for someone who also got AFA Appointment. Hoping he takes AFA! ;)

    I meant that KC would likely have more applications than less populated areas. I believe there was a district 5 on the appointment thread....hope for you he picks AF too!

    You actually congratulated him in the thread back in December, but no, I have not posted it in the appt thread.

    Are you sure you want to post what you did on this public forum? I have 10 thousand reasons why it is not a good idea!

    I edited your email and phone number out of your post rather than waiting for you to reply to ktnatalk.

    Let me know if you want it back there because I tend to let people make their own decisions. However, you do realize that this is a public forum, read by many, many people who may or may not even be interested in military life as well as databots that crawl the web constantly searching for emails and phone numbers to harvest for spammers, right?. But if you want it on here, I will put it back.
