    Are the MOCs in contact with one another when they are awarding nominations to candidates?

    Also, is it uncommon for a candidate to receive three nominations to the same academy, or will the offices try to balance it out so to speak.

    Thanks in advance!

    multiple nominations

    It depends on the jurisdiction. Historically, the Texas senators will not duplicate; some Texas representatives will duplicate a senatorial nomination, others won't. Some states have no such restrictions at all and there have been applicants with multiple nominations.

    Yes, it depends on your state. I'm from Kansas and have two nominations, but Kansas doesn't have quite as many applicants as other states. Typically, the more populated states have a higher chance of having MOCs who communicate.

    Here in Ohio, yes. Senator Brown's Service Academy Coordinator said that Brown's office confers with Portman's before final decisions are made regarding who gets a nomination from whom. The letters - yes and no - go out just before Christmas.
