I'll start with what I *think* is important - feel free to correct/change; I don't think this gives much away when looking at privacy - don't mention which district; the senators don't give away anything either except the state; seems private enough?

Submitted 10/1
Decision/answer received - 12/17 (rep) from TX
12/20 (sen Cruz) from TX
No response from Sen Cornyn

This way next year's candidates can have a relatively centralized database on "general timeframes" to expect updates

Why mention when you submitted it? That has absolutely no bearing on when they announce/award the noms which is generally based on the deadlines - either the MOC or the Academy's.

because if someone is arriving here checking out the process they might not realize how early some of the deadlines are; seeing that certainly shocked us and we got started early. With an overall nomination deadline of 31 Jan from the SA, I never expected the MOC deadline to be as early as it was. Just trying to help others but \_O_/

So is the date you mentioned as “submitted” in your original post the same as the deadline for one of the MOCs?

... and whatever happened this year may not apply at all next year.

Yes, both TX Senators have 10/1 deadlines.
In the 2019-2020 cycle (SA Class of 2024):
Cruz: Online but selected items may mail in; opened 04/05/19; RECEIVED by Friday, 10/04/19. NOTE RECEIVED BY!
Cornyn: MAIL in 1 hardcopy packet; updated forms available approx same time early April; POSTMARKED by Friday, 10/04/19

Both have SAT/ACT codes to send official scores
Cruz: 4 Letters of recommendation - NO SPECIFIC FORM
Cornyn: 3 Letters of recommendation, 2 optional - MUST USE Specific form and allowed to attach your LOR

Cornyn's forms were identical to recent past years
These dates are in-line with recent past years, usually available first week April, due first week October.

I was actually thinking of this same thing myself, BUT it may be a different MOC in your/my district from year to year (or they may change how they do things). I guess the Class of 2025 (and beyond!!) will have suffer just as much as we are now, lol!
