DS is current sophomore at boarding school on east coast. We live in NH. He will apply to USNA and USMA during the fall of senior year. Senators Shaheen and Ayotte are holding a NH Military Service Academy Day on May 9th 2015, which will also include the attendance of representatives from the USMA, USMMA, USAFA, USCGA, and USNA. "For students who are interested in obtaining Service Academy Nominations from the NH Congressional delegation and for those interested in attending any of our Nation's Service Academy's." Staff from NH Congressional districts will also be there. Since DS is at boarding school, he will need to fly back to NH and will miss athletic commitments, which is a non-issue. He wants to attend this meeting, believing it's not too early to start the process. My take is this NH Service Academy Day is for rising seniors vs. juniors and thus he should wait to attend in May 2016. Please note that he will apply to SLE and SS next year also. I'm posting in USNA forum since his preference right now is USNA. Thoughts? How important is it for him to attend this Academy Day?
