    I'm sure this has been addressed somewhere, but I could not find it...

    I currently have a congressional nomination from Henry Cuellar. My father is in the Air Force, so I qualify for the Presidential Nomination. I have heard that if you have both the Presidential and Congressional then the board will only look at the Congressional Nomination. I am wondering if I should send in my papers to get the Presidential Nomination (and even if there is still time to get a Presidential Nomination??), or if that would just be superfluous. Thank you!

    I think the standard answer here is to apply to every nomination source you are eligible for. If you happen to get multiple nominations, that gives the SA you choose more flexibility to get you an appointment.

    Other thank Presidential/Medal of Honor Nominations; are the rest of the nomination sources considered equal, ie Senator nomination vs Congressman.

    Our state senators worked together with my congressional representative to avoid awarding more than one nomination per candidate. Will having only one nomimation reduce chances of SA acceptance.

    A nomination is a nomination is a nomination. They are all equal in value. Having more gives the SA more possible ways to offer a candidate an appointment. There is absolutely no greater value to having a Senator relative to a Congressman etc.
