I was recruited to play football for Navy back in 1983 and went to NAPS, so no nomination was needed, and graduated in 1988. My son applied to USNA this year and like everyone else we are going to the mailbox in anticipation daily between now and the end of March. MY QUESTION centers around what I think someone referred to NWL here? or National Nominations. We are in Florida and my son received a nomination from Senator Nelson. We then received letters from Senator Rubio and our Congressman congratulating my son on getting his nomination and that the Senators and Congressmen in Florida talk to each other to make sure there is no overlap (i.e. giving multiple nominations to one person). I sent an e-mail to our congressman's office, since I thought it would be in the better interest of the applicant, who goes to three independent interviews, if they received multiple Noms. They were kind enough to call me and we had a great discussion. They said they loved my son, his interview was great and that he was one of two they interviewed, who also received a Nom from a Senator, so even though they would have given him theirs, they gave it to someone else. They said since the Senator Nom was harder to get that it would be better for that one to be submitted and that they notified USNA that they were going to give it to my son, but didn't due to the overlap. Nice. The part that I was unaware of, was that my Congressman said he had 6 appointments to USNA last year, 5 to Air Force and 4 to USMA. I thought each congressman only got 1 each? She said that we are in a very competitive district and typically get a lot of national Noms. Our Senator's office indicated that they go in search of Noms from other states and congressmen. So out of 10 noms from a Senator or Congressman in a competitive State, like Florida, Virginia, Maryland or California, how many can get an appointment from USNA?
