    Has anyone from New Jersey been notified of senator nominations yet from Booker or Menendez?

    Nothing for my DS yet. He was told January 10. Last year they made their notifications at the deadline, Jan 31.
    Its rough waiting. Hang in there.

    How did they notify you? Phone call or letter? This process is so nerve wrenching

    DS has not heard anything from the senators since his interview. The January 10 date was information he got from his interviews. I also got the same information during a conversation I had with one of the senators aids while I was waiting in the lobby while my son interviewed. Their goal is to make their nominations by mid January.

    From previous posts on this forum, last years those selected for nominations were called by the senators office on Feb 1.

    Our representative may nominate before the holidays, thats only a few days from now. But, who knows.

    Yes the waiting is nerve wrenching. My son's plan C is in place with an acceptance to our big state U, so he is going to college :)
    Motivating him to complete the rest of his college applications is challenging, but at least they are churning out at a pace that slower than I would like.

    Just venting. I really don't understand what takes the senators from New Jersey so long to do their nominations. It has been over two months since interviews were conducted and no nominees have yet been notified? I've read of candidates in other states receiving nominations within days of their interviews.

    I was able to get an appointment into USNA from the presidential nomination.
    However, I too, just received a call directly from Senator Menendez awarding me his nomination to USAFA.
    Does Menendez have principal nominees?

    Just got a phone message from senator Menendez for my DS to please call him back ...
    Is this how they usually notify nominations ? It couldn't be bad news? But my son wasn't home and when he tried calling back ..it was the senate office answering machine

    Rec'vd a call from Senator Menendez a few hours ago informing me that he awarded me a nomination to USNA. So happy and over the moon. Rece'vd an LOA back in October and this was the final requirement! Best of luck to you all and thank you for all of the great info you have posted on this forum.

    Rhpsue,

    That is what I got too! I wasn't near the phone when he originally called. I called him back as soon as I got the message and Senator Menendez notified me :)
