i posted this under the nominations category, but I figured i'd stick it up here as well. is there anyone out there that lives in the 28th district? I did my interview with Cuellar's office back on dec. 4, and was told by the three colonels doing the interview that I had really good credentials. To top it off, I got a LOA from West Point (my first choice) the following monday. Then the next week I get a rejection letter from Cornyn. Then the day after that i get a rejection letter from Cuellar. Still haven't heard anything from Hutchison. I was pretty puzzled after getting the thumbs down from Cuellar since I figured it a district that's not as competitive (has mainly rural border counties in it where practically no one lives). To top it off the guys he had doing the interview practically told me I was in (not trying to brag or exaggerate, that pretty much the way it was). I'm really worried since getting one from Hutchison seems like a long shot. I've got a backup with a NROTC scholarship to A&M, but getting into West Point has been a really big deal for me since I was in the third grade, so its been pretty frustrating. Anyways here's some info on me if you guys have any tips GPA: 3.68 Rank: 2 out of about 126 SAT: CR- 720, Math- 630, Writing- 670 ACT: 28 did Varsity football (captain) Varsity powerlifting JV cross-country Varsity track played 7-on-7 football am on and have been on UIL Academic team for math stuff NHS member FFA member as well (went to state in one of their career developement competitions and regionals in their leadership developement competitions) writer for school newspaper also, i did some snooping around on the WP parents website for south texas, and i figure from the list of cadets on there that Cuellar should have had at least one slot open at west point, which means he could have nominated up to ten people this year at least. And when you figure in that he probably had vacancies open at both Annapolis and USAFA as well, that adds up to at least 30 nominations. i saw the list of people to be interviewed on the day that i went in for my interview, and there was only about 30 people on it. so naturally ive been quite worried these past few weeks, since i heard there were as many as 800 applicants to Hutchison's office . Anyways any tips or info onto how many slots were open this year with the 28th or Hutchison or what the odds are with getting a nom from Hutchison would be greatly appreciated. Also I got an LOA from the Naval Academy just the other day.
