I recently got a nomination from my district congressman and was wondering if this will appear on my application. I'm concerned if I need to call in to my USAFA counselor to update this just to make sure. In addition, when I received the mail informing me about my nomination, it said that because I received a nomination to USAFA, the Academy will bring each applicant before a Board for approval. Once the Appointment has been made, the Academy will notify my service academy director and she will contact me. She will be on vacation beginning December 17th and will return after the New Year. HOWEVER the letter stated, "You MAY know of your appointment before she returns". So, I'm guessing there's a possibility of receiving an appointment for USAFA BEFORE March/April? I've already asked this question on this forum, but nobody replied to this yet so I apologize if you've already seen this before.
