    I interviewed with my congressman's office several weeks ago and received notification via mail today that I received a nomination to USAFA. However, Air Force is my 3rd choice, thus I am very surprised I was nominated. Are all nomination notifications sent out at once? Or is there still a chance that I received a nomination to navy or West Point as well but haven't received it yet? I am asking because Navy is my first choice. Thanks!

    Every MOC notifies differently. My DS's MOC called him personally. He also posted the complete list on his website and did a press release for the local newspapers who then wrote articles featuring the noms.

    I would certainly call the MOC's office and thank the coordinator for the AF nom and ask if you received more than one nom. It's okay to say that it was your third choice and are just making sure that there isn't one more present still lurking at the bottom of the Christmas stocking.

    Okay I may do that! I am surprised because we had to rank our preferences and I told them Air Force was my third choice... Thus I didn't expect to receive it. Perhaps they send notifications at different times. Either way I am immensely happy about the nomination please don't get me wrong!

    I forgot to say Congratulations! ANY nom is hard earned and worth celebrating.

    What a story. Congratulations on the NOM, even though it is not what you wanted. Please keep us posted as to the outcome. I hope you get it all straightened out and you end up at USNA.

    The exact same thing happened to me and I nearly had a heart attack. My preference order was USNA, USMA, then USAFA. I called my
    Bgo right away and he contacted the academy and my congressman and found out that my congressman had nominated me for all three. I suggest you call your bgo/ MOC and I'm sure it will all get straightened out. Best of luck!
