    But I'm sure she filled out a lengthy paper application in order to apply for the nominations, had test scores sent, answered essay questions, probably provided a photo. Just cause there was no interview doesn't mean there was no evaluation. In our State, only our Congressperson interviewed, our two Senators were paper reviews only. I'd say count your blessings...I'd also recommend holding on to every nom you have in order to maximize all your chances. As I understand it--every nomination means another review. Whichever one her (hopeful) appointment will be charged against, the SA will redistribute the other unused one as they see fit to another deserving candidate.

    DD received Sen. Markey's nom to USAFA! Now we hurry up and wait! Best of luck to all families!
    Also, received word she was awarded a NROTC scholarship. She has been accepted to FSU but also awaits UNC and BU.

    I've heard nothing. It sounds like Markey released nominations for USAFA and USMA, but why would they wait on USNA? I'm assuming I did not get one, but no news is no news...

    It does seem strange and my DS is making the same assumption.

    Admittedly it is getting late in the game, but there is still time. Trying to guess why a MOC does something is a losing proposition. You've waited this long, a little more won't kill anyone.

    Let me share my DS example and if it might bring you some cheer ... he got denied by both senators of CA. Only hope was congressman. (Had LOAs from the Navy and AFA and an LOE from the West Point - humble, happy and hopeful to attend any academy to continue the family legacy of service). Attended congressman's interview. Within 4 days of the interview AFA portal showed him getting nominated. 2+ weeks passed by but no news if got nominated for the Navy and West point or not? My DS sent a note asking if academy received the list or not from the congressman. As of 30th Jan, Navy and WP said they have not received the list. Then got an email from the congressman's office that nominations slate was sent today (on Jan 31st).
    Bottom Line: why AFA's list was sent soon after the interview and Navy/WP after 2+ weeks on the last day? No logical reason that we can think of. Let's give the congressman's office a "big thanks and praise" that they did it on the last day in the midst of their numerous competing priorities for their time.

    So.. please do not assume anything. This is what going to be the life at the academy. :)

    Some MOC offices have different review panels for each SA, like WP grads/retired Army for USMA apps, AF officers/alum for USAFA, and so on. Depending on the panels' availability and the sheer volume of applications, it doesn't surprise me that some nomination slates might be completed and submitted sooner than others.

    Make sense if multiple panels are there to interview for a particular academy applicants. In our DS case, there was only one panel consist of 5 members (1 AFA grad, 2 WP grads, 2 Navy grads) and still submission of slates were at different times. Again, I am not saying anything against any process or person. At the same time we all knows that how hard our kids had worked throughout this application process and I wish certain things (especially communication) would have been better. I believe that going thru these things are also learning for our kids.

    Did anyone end up receiving/hearing about any nominations to USNA from Senator Markey's office?
