I am currently a junior. I took the SAT a few days ago, am taking the ACT this Saturday, and am taking the CFA at NASS this summer. I filled out the first part for my local congressman nomination, and have written the essay I will submit when applying for the Vice President nomination. I have also looked into my senators besides my house rep. I am pretty much guaranteed up to 3 nominations from my local rep (his liaison told me they only gave like 2 nominations last year due to my district being ultra uncompetitive). I will continue to research, but would people say the ideal time for acquiring nominations is in the summer before entering senior year? Am I behind or on track?? Any advice is welcome, I am looking deeper into the process and hopefully I’m doing this the right way.
