    Aloha. I am trying to understand this whole process better. My daughter applied for three congressional nom. She heard from one of the senators on Jan. 31st letting her know that she received his principal nom. She also heard from senator #2 in early Feb. giving her a competitive nom. I thought that was it...after all my impression was that MOC noms had to be turned over by Jan 31st. YESTERDAY she got a letter from our representative in the House stating that his board had chosen her as one of his competitive noms. The letter was dated March 13th. Weird, huh? My daughter's candidate application page on the USNA website only indicates the two first MOC noms. Can someone help me understand this? I would like to understand so that I don't offer anyone else bad advice about due dates. Thanks!

    The MOC due date is January 31st. On rare occasion a MOC may make a change to a slate and/or add someone - I cannot speculate what exactly happened in your situation... but the MOC deadline is January 31st. This late change implies that something out of the ordinary occurred in your district and the MOC and SA discussed the situation and your D was granted a late nomination. It is rare and others should not expect it to occur...

    Hmmmm....

    I agree with your information about the MOC due dates, however it is possible that for some reason, the MOC has updated, (or maybe turned in late) their NOM list to include your daughter. It seems like good news, but out of the ordinary in terms of timing.

    With her principal Nom, she will receive an offer of appointment as long as she has completed all the parts of the app and is qualified academically, medically and has passed the CFA.

    The additional noms give the academy added flexibility in getting offers of appointment to others.

    Good luck to her. Enjoy your roller coaster ride. Go Navy!
