    Would really appreciate some advice. My daughter is applying to USNA this fall, and we are moving cross country in a few weeks. We're hoping this doesn't throw a real wrench in her plans. Will she be applying for a nomination from our new congressional district? We'll be establishing legal residency there, of course. I'm not sure if USNA requires a minimum time lived in the nominating district, but it wouldn't seem right to be applying from our old district. She's a strong candidate, and I'd hate for this to hurt her.

    Since you will be establishing residency in the new district that is where she should apply to for her noms. Sounds like this topic is a great one for her to address in some of her interviews! Good luck to her.

    Demonstrating flexibility and adaptability in the face of change is a universal military skill. Military folks move - a lot - and re-establishing themselves in a new community is a way of life. Your daughter is getting a head start on a valuable life skill, and learning to cope while being wrenched from familiar friends, school and neighborhood will pay off for her, though the fun factor at the time is not high. Great essay topic...

    I moved mid-year my Junior year...and it helped ! Class rank was middle of the pack in large metro area, and jumped to 10% in smaller town.
