I'm still not quite sure how Congressional Nominations work. If someone can explain thoroughly, that'll be awesome. From my understanding, I write letters to any state senators asking them to nominate me. But why and how do they nominate me? Do I send them my resume or my application for them to see what kind of person I am? Up to how many applicants can senators nominate? What's the maximum number of senators I can apply for to get a nomination? How many nominations do I need to get in order to pass this level of the admission process? What happens if I don't get any nominations? Is that possible not to get any nominations? How important is getting the nomination part of the admission process compared to the entire process? Thanks alot!
