That means he is in right? Congratulations!
My son got his rejection from Toomey yesterday explaining that they do not double nominate and since he got a nomination from our congressman that he will not be receiving another nomination.. .
My question is, out of PA 16 congressional districts, there will be 160 kids nominated through their congressman, so it seems that the senator is now picking from kids that weren’t in the top 160 in the state? Meaning no offense but this doesn’t seem right that a kid gets a higher spot by earining a principal nomination from a senator when they didn’t rank in the top 10 in their own district? Am I thinking through this wrong?
I know this is just the “way it is” but it’s defintiely a bit broken. I agree with sharing the wealth but I would think the senator should still be able to double nominate for the few couple of slots in their slate to ensure the most qualified kid gets a fair shot
Agreed...we got the same letter. My son has a LOA and received a nomination from Congressman Thompson.
And DD received Congr. nom today so all is well.Thank you. As follow up, Franken announced the new Senator will start on Jan 2 and will handle the noms. Fortunately, DD received LOA so we're at ease now waiting for noms.Al Franken's office "postponed" interviews 3 days before when they were to happen. Now he's announced his upcoming resignation. His office isn't taking calls. Does anyone know what could/might become of the interviews and or nominations from his office?
I simply cannot imagine the angst you must feel at being 3 days away from a nomination interview and having it postponed because this clownshoe announced his resignation.
I hope that they will have someone step in and take care of it, for your sake. Especially if it's your 3rd interview and you don't have a nomination yet.

USAFAMOM21, didn't DD apply to USCGA too I remember? Did she get appointment?DD received a VA congressional nomination to USAFA yesterday to add to her list of nominations from Senator Warner and a presidential nomination. We are not sure if it is a Principle Nomination or not because she was left a voicemail from the congressman himself and he did not specify. The waiting game continues and yes I am handling it much worse than her!
