I asked this question on the appointment thread but maybe it is better in it's own thread. I am going crazy! My son has been given the principal nomination by our congressman and we know that he is triple qualified. Is an appointment guaranteed at this point? Our congressman said it was but we haven't seen anything posted on his Navy site and I am not sure that the congressman has even sent in his nominations to the academy yet. I want to give him a Navy sweatshirt for Christmas. Anyone have an idea about the process from here? Things are such a mystery. We have never been through anything quite like this before. We've been very excited but still cautious. Thanks for any insight!
