    Movie: The Last Full Measure

    A friend of mine was the Air Force PJ Advisor for the movie, The Last Full Measure, honoring Medal of Honor Recipient A1C William H. Pitsenbarger. It's in theaters now, and I just finished watching it with my wife. A "must see." One of the best movies I've ever seen. For all of the veterans...

If DD has an NROTC Scholarship to RD college #1 (has not heard from yet), was accepted to EA college #2 which was unexpected, but higher on her list than college #1, and also has RD application pending to college #3, which has now become her...

    Senate vs. Congressional

    Any thoughts on the relative value of senate nominations vs. congressional? Is a congressional nomination more valuable because the battle to win the district slate is less fierce than competing with the top candidates from the entire state? I know that it's an amazing honor to have either (or...

    Which District or Both?

    If I own a second piece of real estate in a different district within my state, can my kid apply from either district even though they primarily reside in one of them?

    State/District Coordination Question

    Mods, BGOs, ALOs, RCs, anyone else. I tried to research this question on the forum, and I got patchy information, so I wanted to ask it directly. Do the academies know which Districts and Senators coordinate to avoid double-nominations (to the same or different academies)? Do they take...

    Requesting Help for DS - SAT vs. ACT

    I'm throwing this out to the forum for DS, because you all are incredibly experienced and have been so helpful during this process. So... DS has SAT 1480 (740/740) single sitting (and best superscores), and that is the high score on his portal. DS just got ACT from December - 34 Math, 35...

    Requesting Presidential Nomination Early a Mistake?

    When DS submitted his packages to service academies this summer, he sent his request for Presidential Nomination early. This eliminated his chance of receiving an LOA. It seems as though alot of LOAs were given out this year. The reason for him sending in the Presidential early was to be...

    Expecting Rejection at NROTC School

    DS is expecting rejection at NROTC scholarship school. He applied EA, and those results should come out any day. If in fact rejected EA, what should he do with his NROTC scholarship. Does it hang in limbo until he decides where he's going later next year?

    Admissions Updates

    How often should Admissions be updated on senior year achievements? Should an email be sent with each new achievement because candidates never know when they will be boarded? Or should they go periodically as a list (as to not be overwhelming)? Any advice would be appreciated!
