I got a nomination from my Senator to go to the Air Force Academy. My senator, as far as I know, didn't choose principal nominees. What are my general chances? I know there are a lot of talented people who also received nominations in my state, so I'm assuming for the moment that I won't be named principal by the academy. Does it make a difference that I got my nomination from a senator rather than congressman? I mean, considering that senators have 50+ candidates and congressmen around here have like, 10, shouldn't senatorial nominations be given more credit? Just wondering. I've already gotten a conditional appointment to USMMA, which is pretty sweet in itself.
