    My Son had the same situation. He was offered a USMMA Nomination and had not even applied. So we did Real Quick. Unfortunately, no appointment.

    You need to let let the Senators office know you have an application in now, they probably have to contact USMMA and let them know you have the Nomination. They couldn't put the nomination in for you before because as far as USMMA was concerned you didn't exist.

    Unlike the other academies USMMA is still almost a completely paper based application, so the processing and updates are much slower especially this time of year.

    You don't have to have the App complete to get the Nomination, just opened.

    The same Congressional office that offered him the Nomination said they offered other kids USMMA Nominations and they declined to apply, I couldn't believe it.

    I did my research after the Nomination and was so impressed by the opportunities.

    Note: The Fitness test is different so don't let that go too long.

    LDH - actually, the fitness test for the application is the same. The CFA is the same for all of the service academies for application purposes. So, if someone completes the CFA for one service academy, all they need to do is let their admissions counselor know and admissions will coordinate to receive the score and update the file.

    @SoccerFlyer - Good news is that you can still apply to USMMA up until March 1st. If you're really interested in USMMA, then by all means complete the application and let your MOC and the Academy know you want the nom.

    Soccerflyer, it's urgent that you get this straightened out. Unfortunately, your are up against the 1/31 deadline which falls on the weekend. They must submit it through the online portal. Where are you from. Send me a PM and I'll try to help. Without the nomination entered by 1/31, the academy can't do anything for you. I wish the nominators would not wait till the last day for this reason!

    I am sorry you are correct, it is the Coast Guard that has a 1.5 mile run instead of the 1 mile
