Clinton's office, I understand from my son, conducted a very good interview and he felt good about it. It took place in November. But, here it is February, and no word, one way or another--and not on his status page.Not sure Clinton ever did care about the people of New York - had an eye on the "prize" from day one.
We are from Long Island. Both Senators' offices are on 3rd Avenue and NYC. Sen. Clinton's committee's interview was quite formal and they apparently did them all day on this one particular day. Sen. Schumer's was a few weeks later, and they contacted my son by phone and gave him a choice of several different dates. As you might remember, Sen. Schumer's instructions for sending in the package were very precise; eg. staples, not paper clips; compiled in a certain order. The interview was very short and much more informal than Sen. Clinton's, with two people from his office doing the interview.I'm curious what part of the state you are from. We have had tried to contact both Senators offices multiple times with no responses. My D did not get an interview with either although Schumer's office finally left a message telling us that his office had not set their dates for interviews in this area as of yet...?? (we are in Rochester). We finally gave up. Like you said- we are so thankful for our MOC's nomination.
I requested a nomination from Clinton and Schumer on January 7, 2008. I still have not heard from them. Neither have sent me an apllication packet. on the same date, however, I sent the letter requesting a nomination to my Congressman and I recieved a packet containing instructions. Should I call Schumer and Clinton's office? Should I write them a letter? Should I just wait it out? Any input would be very helpful! When did everyone else apply for their nomination? When did you receive the materials? Thanks a lot!
Interesting that both of our sons had interviews with Sen. Clinton's office, but received no notice, even though they were unsuccessful in that nomination. Yet, the successful nominees' names were posted on her website on January 8.My son just received a letter from Sen. Schumer indicating he received a nomination. The USNA website indicates that the nomination was issued on January 28--I don't know why the delay. He received a nomination from his Congresswoman as well. No nomination from Sen. Clinton (though he interviewed).
Clinton published her nominees: http://www.senate.gov/~clinton/news/statements/details.cfm?id=290299&&
Good luck to all.
