    Hello, I have already received a nomination from my local Congressman (house of reps.), however, the other day i recieved a letter from my senator that a spot is open and for me to correspond back with him to say if i accept or not.

    Can i have two nominating sources? or do i only accept one?

    Also, on part two of the application, there only a certain number of spots to write down non athletic activities, should i attach another piece of paper? or just write down what i can?

    :confused: :confused: :confused: Thank you very much!!!

    You only need one. Yes, attach another sheet. This is your chance to present yourself in the best possible light. Use it!
    There are many threads which talk about the application. Some suggest choosing the best activities and the ones which you were passionate about. Adding others that were merely a whim might water down the things which carry weight. There, I answered this question with a yes and no. Maybe I have a future in politics. Also look to the posters who actually are involved in the process in some way. Mine the forum and you will find many opinions. Only then you can see which suits you best. Good luck

    Yes- you can have multiple nominations however it is the Academy that ultimately makes the admissions decision.

    By now you should have developed a high school resume which should be included with your application. This should list all of you activities, honors, etc.
