    Our son received his fully qualified letter from the USMA the first week of December. The following week he received a LOA. Over the next 2 weeks he received letters from 2 of our congressmen congratulating him on receiving a nomination from each to the USMA. Do we need to worry which type of nomination it was (list, primary, etc.)? What will happen next?

    LOA + Nomination = Appointment as long as the conditions of the LOA are meant. It doesn't matter where you are on your congressman's or senator's slate because a candidate with an LOA ranked at ex #6 on the slate will receive an appointment and not get charged to the congressman/senator. Thats how congressman can say they sent 3 people to one SA while there was only one vacancy that year. Hopefully I explained that right, and there is more info in other threads if you care to look.

    What will happen next? I'd say an appointment with his name on it will be arriving shortly. Congrats! :thumb:

    If LOA's don't get charged to the congressman/senator....like in the exanple you cite above if a LOA is ranked #6 on a slate..........who does get charged for the LOA.....surely someone does?

    Another question for you, if you are right under the bar for an loa (very competitive) but don't receive one, and once receiving a nomination, can you receive an appointment without it being charged to the MOC? Thanks

    pasquinel: sorry but I don't know the answer...

    smle: I want to say no. You either have an LOA or you don't. However if you are very competitive, then you may make it into the national pool and hopefully receive an appointment that way i think. I am not entirely sure.
