We are part of the "waiting" group. In reading through posts I am very confused about parts of the admissions process. Our DS is 3Q'd/NOM but has not gotten a LOA or even a returned call from his BGO. What is the "National Pool" and how do you know if your kid is in it? Does anyone know if all congressmen call their noms if they are offered an appointment? I think we are mainly confused over "rolling" admissions. DS had everything completed and submitted in November and recieved his NOM 11/22. We don't understand why he hasn't heard anything if this is rolling admissions... Any help would be appreciated!
