    Has anyone heard back from Senator Cruz or Senator Cornyn. I received an email from Cornyn saying they were going to review the candidates on Friday November 22nd and then contact them shortly after. And I know this is a stretch but has anyone heard anything from Congressman Hensarling?

    MY DS received a phone call from Senator Cruz' office on 11/20 and they told him they would be nominating him to the USAFA. He has not heard from Cornyn's office and he was supposed to have an interview with our Congressman tomorrow, but he let them know that he had the nomination from Cruz' office and they told him they usually don't nominate if the candidate already has a nomination so he canceled the interview. He has his LOA and is not a recruited athlete. Good luck! It is nerve wracking!

    I was too late to apply for noms from the two senators (Senator Cornyn's office was kind enough to call me to tell me so), but I have an interview with Congressman Gallego's (TX-23) board tomorrow afternoon. Best of luck to you!

    Senator Cruz office called DS and said he was nominated to USAFA.

    Haven't heard from Congressman Cornyn except that they were meeting and would let folks know after Thanksgiving. (they don't interview)

    Had interview with Congressman Weber and received letter that they were reviewing applications.

    Already received Presidential nominations to both USNA and USAFA.

    Since DS is seeking appointments to multiple SA he's seeking multiple nominations.

    Congratulations to you and your DS! I had my interview with Congressman Gallego's board a few hours ago and I'm hopeful for a nomination. I would certainly be happy with a nomination to any of the four academies, as I have applied to them all.

    I am positive that your DS will receive an appointment to where he wants to go. :smile:

    Congratulations! Having that Presidential nom will help. If gives them multiple options for slotting you before you get to the waiting list. Good luck. Relax and enjoy your holidays. Merry Christmas!

    DS received letter on Saturday from Congressman McCaul TX-10 that he received his nomination to USNA! Nothing yet from Cruz or Cornyn. His classmate also got a nomination from McCaul and the same day received a letter from Cornyn that she did not get his nomination. Not sure why DS hasn't heard from the senators yet. We're just thrilled and blessed he got a nomination. What a great Christmas present! :biggrin:

    Cruz released his nominee list on December 20. Looks like he had 2 slots this year at both USAFA and USNA.

    DS received his nomination to USAFA from Senator Cruz and a letter from Senator Cornyn saying since he got one from Cruz he wasn't getting one from him. (DS has Presidential for USAFA too).

    DS received his official appointment to the USNA last week.

    Just waiting on his official appointment to the USAFA...
