Turbotw -- I would suggest you call the offices of both senators and inquire about when thier interviews will be held. That way you can assure yourself that everything is on track with your file. It also keeps you from scheduling something for that day.
The interviews for both Chambliss and Isakson are on the 2nd and 3rd of November, at their Atlanta offices. I don't remember which is has which day. Exact times haven't been sent out. I havn't got anything from them either, I found this out by talking with the staffer. Hope to meet you there Turbotw.
Yes! The day has come and gone! I interviewed with both Senator Isakson and Chambliss today. I feel confident about the interviews! I really did my best and it was a good time. There were even some laughs towards the end of the Chambliss interview (they asked me if I had a girlfriend and I told them no, but I had been flirting with alot of girls and they said well, hey! we had a girl today interview for west point and she was pretty cute! haha)
Am impressed you were invited to both! I think they both saw 30 candidates, from a pool of 200, so congrats! My son felt like it could not have gone any better than it did. He felt great, they had good rapport, and he wasn't nervous (he practiced with a mock panel the night before for 2 hours!). He got the distinct impression that they would only consider each candidate for one academy list...did you think that, too? Which congressman will you interview with, and when is that? My son will see Linder next Saturday. He flies back from WP on the 6 AM flight (after staying up all night, no doubt!), so he's hoping for a late afternoon interview. His staffer assured us she'd schedule as late as possible due to the circumstance. What part of Georgia do you call home?
Which academy are you hoping for? Maybe you and my son will end up together and I can meet your parents at a parent meeting! Good luck to you!
I, too, got the impression that they really only look at candidates for one academy. I am hoping for West Point.
I am GA District 03 (Lynn Westmoreland) which is the Peachree City/Newnan area although I actually live in Tyrone which is a small town just north of Peachtree City. The apps for Westmoreland weren't due until 1 Nov so they haven't even sent letters out yet about the interviews. Great luck to your son and his congressional interview! That would be great to me a classmate of his at WP and I'm sure my parents would love to meet you at the parents club!
Turbo-Did you hear from Isakson or Chambliss yet? My s got a call on Wednesday from Nancy that he had the nom and the letter came today. Linder will decide in a few weeks. His friend, who interviewed for Chambliss, called the office to notify of the LOA and was told that he had the nom and would be getting a letter shortly.
Best of luck to you!!
Chambliss said his letter would not go out for another few weeks. My friend called to tell them about her son's LOA and they went ahead and told her he had the nom, but the letters wouldn't go out for a few weeks. Best of luck to you! Is Westmoreland seeing many candidates? Linder had a TON, so it will be a trick to get a nom there. In the past he'd put candidates up for more than one academy, but not this year. You had to declare one top choice (he'd consider two if one was MMA).
