Here’s my previous post about an introduction to the importance of the Congressional Interview to attending Military Academies. Thanks to the Structured Learning workbook on Building a Midshipman for this:
The final stage in your pursuit of a Congressional nomination to a United States Service Academy is a personal interview…” This letter, received April 30th of your Junior year, confirms that your Congressman remains aware of your continued interest in the Service Academy interview and nomination.
A year ago, at the Service Academy night, you listened to the presentations from each of the five Service Academies, and then introduced yourself to Congressman Cox’s assistant, Ms. Leslie Duvall, to let her know you would be applying for a nomination. She suggested you get in touch in spring for a packet. Interviews would be the following November. On April 30th, you received a confirmation letter, outlining what the Congressional Nomination packet would include:
- a completed Application for Nomination
- a resume (based on an enclosed sample)
- a short essay discussing your reasons for seeking admission to a Service Academy
- a photo
- SAT examination results
- three letters of recommendation.
