    Hello,

    So my Jr. year in High School began a while ago and I know I need to start looking for nominations but...how?
    Do I just email my senator or Representative and ask or do I call for an appointment?
    I really want to get into West Point and I know that I must have this so can anyone please help me?
    Plus, I was looking at the West Point admission timeline and it says I have to contact my Field Force Representative. I have the same question concerning that.

    First: start with reviewing the "stickys" on this site:
    http://www.serviceacademyforums.com/index.php?forums/nominations.21/

    ...and this one:

    and ESPECIALLY this one:
    http://www.serviceacademyforums.com/index.php?threads/a-lot-of-admissions-information.26838/

    Second: review the USMA admissions site thoroughly so that you will know what USMA is looking for before you even begin asking for a nom. If you do this, you will know who your FFR is. Yes, email or call him/her, but not before doing the above.

    Third: Google your two senators' and congressional rep's websites and search for a section on nominations. You should find a site that looks like this one.

    Good luck!

    You won't be able to apply for a nomination until the year prior to entering West Point (as a rising senior).
