I'm starting the nomination process a bit late, but have a few questions/concerns. 1. Is there any penalty to doing it this late? A lot of my congressmen have a deadline (usually late oct, early nov) for nomination applications. Does it matter WHEN you send it in as long as its by this date? 2. Im really only applying for a USMMA nomination. If i understand it correctly, i can apply for a nomination for any of my representatives (as well as my senators). A lot of my reps on their application have "you must reside in so and so district). Are they going to take one look at my address and throw it out or are they going to see/know the exception for usmma noms? 3. For Letters of recommendation, is it okay to have a "generic" one for each application? With my senators, i have 13 total applications for nominations to fill out. I dont want to go to my boss or my teacher and ask for 13 different letters of rec. Is there anything else that i should be doing at this stage besides requesting nominations? Thanks for the help.
