So I didn't receive an appointment this year... Well on the bright side, it looks like I have plenty of work I can still salvage off my file. I already wrote on my resumes that I participated in SLS as well as Boys' State. Would it be alright to mention to other colleges that I received a congressional nomination for a particular service academy? Should I mention on my resume that I was congressionally nominated by Representative/ Senator X to USXX? If not to colleges, then how about for jobs, internships, scholarships etc? And finally, would an ROTC scholarship offer count as an "academic achievement?" Thanks for reading!
