Hi, my name is Briana, and I am a prospective student for the Academy. I have been to the Summer Seminar and have been approved to candidate status just a while ago. I am very serious about entering the USAFA. I've gathered most of LORs, and I'm currently filling out apps for my congressmen. These questions might be obvious, but I figured it wouldn't hurt: Should I try and contact them soon? Just to let them know who I am and that I'm serious? Or does that not even help? And what is the nomination experience like? Is there anything I should prepare for in advance besides the basics? Thank you for the help!
