So my son did not get in to the academy last year (Senator nomination) but he did get the NROTC scholarship. Fast fwd. he said about a month ago he was not going to go to the academy. Confused Dad: He continued his application and today he got a letter from our CT congressman, he text me to open the letter. "Congratulations! Based on your application I will not need to interview you, good luck with the class of 2019". I called him and he was one very happy kid, his BGO interview is next Friday. What is up with not getting the Congressman's interview but receiving a nomination without the interview. Does this often happen? I know there are several candidates in the area. Thoughts?
