    Has anyone been notified of their nom status from any of the CA senators? From the information I've scooped up in previous threads, the offices tend to notify a select few candidates by this time in December? :) good luck to all!

    Sen. Feinstein

    Today, DS' portal shows that he has a nomination from Sen. Feinstein.

    I have several questions, if you don't mind me asking...

    When was your DS contacted for an interview? What was the interview like? Do you know if all 30 of Senator Feinstein's nominations are taken? Do you know if DS received the Principal nomination?

    DD was interviewed by Sen. Feinstein's "board" via the phone last Saturday. When she checked the portal for USMA it read nomination from CA25, not from Sen. Feinstein. So, she will not receive a senatorial nom from Feinstein, since she received one from her MOC.

    Does anyone know in CA if you can have an interview with both senators? DD was notified in November from Feinstein's office, but not from Boxer's. Has anyone heard from Boxer's yet?

    Feinstein

    No word yet from Boxer yet. DS had Phone interview with Feinstein's office for USAFA. MOC interview coming up. Results by Christmas. If Feinstein calls does that mean Boxer will not conduct interview for same service academy? Does senator Feinstein withhold nomination if MOC grants one?

    DS was contacted by Sen. Feinstein's office the week before Thanksgiving. He had a phone interview last Saturday, Dec. 9. DS spent about 25 minutes on the phone with a couple of Marines. They told DS they had 10 phone interviews that day but didn't know how many other groups also were conducting interviews. DS said they asked why West Point and why he thought he should be given a nomination. They also asked him to identify a time he had failed and a time he had succeeded and what he had learned from both experiences. We don't know if Feinstein does principal noms or not; DS has an LOA so he just needs some kind of nomination.

    I have heard that Boxer and Feinstein compare lists so they do not duplicate interviews or nominations.

    Kirkmanj, my DD hasn't heard from Boxer either. I'm not sure if she has scheduled her interviews yet or if the senators "talk" and don't interview the same candidates. I don't know for certain. My DS had an interview with Boxer's office a few years ago, but never heard from Feinstein's, so.. ? My understanding is that in CA if you have a senatorial nomination to a certain academy, you will not receive one from the MOC and visa versa. They want to spread the wealth to as many candidates as possible. DS received 3 different nominations 4 years ago, 2 from MOC and 1 from Sen. Boxer. All were for different academies.

    Are CA senatorial nominations solely based on interviews? Is it possible for an applicant to receive a nomination without an interview? I currently have a unique LOA that does not provide me with an actual letter to show the senator/bring to the MOC interview... however, I was told by an admissions officer that I received one at CVW.

    Boxer USNA Nominations?

    DS applied for both Sen. Boxer and Feinstein but hasn't received a call on either. DS has his interview with MOC next month. Just wondering if anyone has heard from Sen. Boxer since it seems Sen. Feinstein has already conducted her interviews.

    Nomination!

    Just to follow up. Although the nomination from Senator Feinstein was posted on the USAFA portal we hadn't heard directly from the Senator's office to confirm. As we had an additional MOC interview yesterday we contacted our ALO on whether we should continue the interview and he stated yes as if we hadn't been officially notified then the nomination wasn't confirmed.

    Luckily my DD contacted the Senator's POC who set up the interview who confirmed the nomination stating the official letter was mailed out earlier this week! Now we just have to wait for it to get to Germany!

    Hi there, DS had a phone interview with someone from Senator Feinstein's board on December 6th and received a phone call the following week from an aid at Feinstein's office notifying him that he got the nomination for the USMA. Needless to say, he was thrilled, however we are wondering if anyone else out there got a personal phone call? He also received a letter today. He interviewed with our MOC last Saturday and was told that he would be notified after the first of the year. Good luck to all those hopefuls out there!

    DS got a phone call from Sen. Feinstein's aide last Friday and received a letter confirming nomination yesterday.
