My son has not heard from Senator Schumer's office as of yet. His letter states interviews start in December. His office seems the most evasive. My son has already been interviewed by Senator Clinton's office in November. They told him he would hear something by December or January. Senator Clinton's office seems to be the most straight forward.

Senator Schumer's office also seemed to downplay the value of an LOA, stating that there are plenty of kids that have them, so they are nothing special - and one way or another a nomination will be gotten (even if an LOA holder was not considered by the senator's office).

But it is true that an LOA holder only needs one nomination - and the easiest place to be is on the "long" list of a Congressman.

I also live in New York. I was contacted by both Senator Schumer, Senator Clinton and my Congressman regarding a nomination. I have already interviewed with Senator Clinton's office (though I don't think that it went as well as I would have liked) and I am scheduled to interview at my Congressman's office tomorrow. Senator Schumer's office contacted me about a week and a half ago and my interview is scheduled for next week.
Good Luck to everyone!

PS - Is anyone interviewing at Congressman King's office tomorrow night?

Firemanvin, No loas unfortunately. I am applying to West Point and the Air Force Academy for nominations.

jr- I also had my interview two days ago....I thought it went really well. How about you? The questions weren't too difficult and the three men on my panel were really nice. Let me know how yours went!

Best of luck to both of you!

I wouldn't downplay an LOA. Kids shed sweat blood and tears and don't get them, they are BIG deals and every MOC knows it. I was told something similar by Sen. Liebermans office but i'm sure this is just to remind those fortunate enough to have an LOA that they shouldn't treat the nomination interview process like a 'shoe in'.
but having an LOA is something to be VERY proud of, they are not given out hapharzardly, and they do indeed give that candidate the edge in the nomination process

also, any candidate needs just one nomination. once you have one from whatever source your good to go
