Students at the U.S. military academies are usually appointed by a member of congress.  During an interview with KFYO, Brice Foster, the district director for Rep. Randy Neugebauer, said an important deadline is coming up next week.

“Applications for the 2011 year are due to our office no later than close of business on the 15th of November,” Foster said.  “So that deadline is fast approaching.”

And if you’re planning for later years…

I would encourage folks to start as early as possible because there are a lot of forms and paperwork our office needs in order to make those recommendations.”
