    Hello- I have been reading these forums and have learned so much! I was wondering if anyone has been appointed or received any word from South Jersey? My daughter is awaiting word, and seeing all of these posts have us somewhat discouraged that she received her MOC's nomination. Do you think there will be portal updates tomorrow ? Thanks for any encouragement!

    Someone said that their admissions counselor said that a bunch would be coming out tomorrow as well. Although it is very discouraging to see another receive an appointment from your district, it is possible that they received a senatorial nomination. There is one user from this forum that appointed very early from my same district, but he was informed via our senator of his success and may have been charged to their slate... We really won't know until we know, as silly as that sounds, and the best we can do is wait patiently.

    I'm up in north NJ, NJ-05. Still in the waiting game as well. I see that someone from my district got appointed back in January with EA. Glad to know there's still candidates out there with me!

    My counselor mentioned this past Tuesday while I was touring the academy that appointments should be coming out tomorrow! A cadet friend of mine also mentioned that he didn't think the administrative part of USAFA will receive a break during their spring break, so most likely waves of appointments will still be coming in. I'm still waiting to hear as well, so I know the pain of such patience! I hope you all hear some good news tomorrow! :)

    Same boat! Still waiting, so it's good to know we're not alone. This is my second time and the waiting never gets easier, but it builds character! ;)

    Ghost_fox15, are you currently in college? Did you apply out of high school and now you're a freshman in college? I'm a second year student in college, and am considering reapplying for 2020 if all else does not work out this year.

    I'm currently a sophomore at FIT. I applied my senior year of high school in 2013, but took my entire freshman year and first semester sophomore year to strengthen my application. If I don't get appointmented this year I'm either going to reapply next year or go OTS. Unfortunately I had a hard time finding a school with aerospace engineering and AFROTC that was within my budget.

    I see. This is my first time applying, and I am a sophomore at UT, so I'm kinda going through the same thing. That's great that you are persistent in trying to strengthen your application! I wish the best of luck to you!! Hope you hear some good news soon !

    hi, my daughter is a Senior in HS, my sister lives in TX & I have one niece at Baylor and one at A&M. =) And my husband is a UT (TN) alum.... and I am a Gator; football season is a blast! Good luck on your quest for appointment, this is certainly a lesson in patience, tenacity and hope! Keeping fingers crossed for everyone! =)
