Please help! We've been going through this application process for nearly a full year now - as my DS applied to USNA the day the portal for Class of 2027 opened up. He attended Summer Seminar, multiple official/registered visits, Candidate Visitor Weekend, and even reached out to the Head Coach of the Collegiate Sailing team (as he has sailed competitively through High School). He completed his entire Application and even got his Medical completed (before the DODMERB site crashed this Fall). His interviews with Blue & Gold Officer, and Congressional Representatives went well. Everything appeared to be a "GO." Today, in the mail we received a beautiful nomination letter from our Congressman...to the U.S. Air Force Academy (which he did not apply to, nor does he have any interest in attending). Long way of asking - but what does this mean? 1. Is it a clerical error in the Congressman's Office? 2. Did the Congressman select five other nominees for USNA, and send this USAFA Nomination as a "consolation prize" hoping we'd accept? We've email the Congressional office, but it's three days before Christmas, and we aren't hopeful to hear back. Any help would be appreciated!
