    Nomination for Current prep student to USAFA

    Yes Agreed with above 2 posts. Expected to apply, but not essential. Son at prep school, applied for all 3....received 1 nomination. He knows of kids that did not apply for any. It's a good effort to apply and interview. I don't think there is anything wrong with having a feather in the cap.

    Nomination not on portal

    I notice that my sons portal indicates a green check for a nomination, but he has not gotten a letter indicating that he has a nomination. I don't want to be overly optimistic, but I think that letters of nominations MAY be sent to the Academy before some get letters. Anyone else have this happen?

    Prep schools/Nominations
