    In my west point portal it shows that I have a nomination from AZ61. How do I tell if this was a principal nomination, or if not, where on the slate I am for the nomination? Is this even possible? Does anyone know anything about the AZ senator noms this year? I think I got John McCain's.

    I don't think you can tell, but the 6 means senator and the 1 means senior senator (vs 2 for junior senator). Congrats!

    Senator McCain's office started notifying folks about a week ago; the Principal's were notified by phone; if you weren't called and told you were the Principal, then you have received a "competitive nomination."

    And that's cause for CONGRATULATIONS!!!! :thumb:

    Senator Flake's office will start notifying folks around this weekend if all goes as they plan. They are not using the "Principal/Alternate" method; they will be using the competitive nomination process: they'll pick 10 nominations and send them up to the academy; the academy will "rack and stack" and decide which receives the appointment. The rest will become qualified alternates.

    Make sense?

    AZ Nomination

    Congrats on your nomination Coltron!
    I had a follow-up question on the AZ process. There are conflicting messages (from last year) on this forum that say McCain does not select more than two people per academy (hence making those two nominations principal). Does anyone know if there is any truth to this or if the process has changed from last year? Thank you!

    Thank you, Sir! And thank you for the information, as well. The nomination had posted to my West Point portal last week and I was confused since I had not received a letter or phone call, yet. Happy Holidays, and thank you for all that you do within our community!

    ca2midwestmom: Thanks for the info and Congrats to your DS for his LOE and nomination, as well! :smile:


    Thanks, chavezbx! I can only speak for this year; but I was told today, by McCains office, that he gave 9 ranked alternate nominations (in addition to his Principal nomination) for each academy slot--except for USMMA, in which he did 10 non-ranked. I was also told that his office mailed the letters out yesterday...so, if you're waiting, check your mailbox today. :wink:
