    I highly recommend that you read the Nominations FAQ on this forum. Then if you still have question Google the following:

    32 CFR Part 575 Admission to the United States Military Academy.

    32 CFR Part 901 Appointment to the United States Air Force Academy.


    These are the Federal laws that detail everything USMA & USAFA. I could not locate the Federal Law related to the USNA. I found the information very informative.

    Did anyone end up hearing about noms to the Naval Academy from Senator Markey this week?

    I've heard nothing. I called the office Wednesday and they said letters would be going out "in a few days." I've been checking the mailbox with no luck. Let me know if you hear anything!

    Will do. It's hard to believe a nom wouldn't appear on the USNA portal at this point, but it also seems strange that no one on the forum seems to have heard anything either.

    Wouldn’t the noms have been posted to the portals already - and if you got a nom, you’d know?

    It’s sad that MOC aren’t more efficient and effective to the people wanting to serve our country.

    I anticipate that I did not get the nomination, but during my interview the staffer emphasized "no news is no news." So, my expectations are low, but nevertheless I am still curious about this nomination and disappointed in the lack of communication.

    @USNAismyplace @MADad I have had the same problem with Markey's office. I already know I recieved a nomination because the USMA portal is fairly up to date, I dont know how often they update the USNA portal. I never recieved a phone call, email, or mail from his office. As @USNAismyplace said "no news is no news" I would not stress over it. You are not out of luck.

    I know this is old...question...do you remember if it was 61 or 62 on your daughter's portal? My DS has two nominations on his portal from the same senator but we have no idea which senator it is. I know it doesn't really matter but it's killing me not knowing LOL

    DS had nom from Senator 1 on portal even though he actually got it from Senator 2.

    On the portal it will say which senator issued the nomination. Senator 1 is the senior senator and senator 2 is the junior senator. DS nomination came from junior senator however portal showed senator 1.

    This confuses many. The senior/junior notation is a "rule of thumb" and not accurate in every state. There have been several examples in this nomination class where the "junior Senator" is senator 1 (USNA) or 61 (USMA) and vice versa. Congrats on the Senate nomination.

    A little annoyed. Senator Markey's office said letters went out last week. Wouldn't that mean a yes or no letter. Still have not received anything. This is so odd.

    It's a shame that some MOCs fail to notify candidates who don't get their nomination. I called last week an a staffer said letters would come "in a few days." I am disappointed in the lack of communication. He and his staff should know better IMO.

    Mail is not that slow and when called you think they could just tell you yes or no.
