DS applied to class of USCGA 2018 as part of EA 2 group. He has also applied to 3 of the 4 service academies. USCGA was his first choice, however. Two things happened on 1/31/14: First, he received notice that he was not going to receive an appointment to USCGA. Second, he received notice that he has been nominated by a senator to attend USMA, USMMA, and USAFA. He would prefer to attend USCGA, and is planning to apply for class of 2019 after one year of college. My question is this: is there any point in notifying the USCGA admissions officer of the congressional nomination? I know that the nomination is not a part of the USCGA admission process, but it is something that we would have placed on his application if we had known about it earlier. Is there any point in bringing it up now?
