    I have read many threads on this topic .......however there is not a crisp answer to this question, that i have been able to find.......

    (1) is there any special processing or considerations that occurs with loa candidates for moc (congressman/woman) or senators nominations..... That does not occur with non-loa candidates?

    (2) are loa candidates charged against moc and/or senator nomination allotments.......for example: If a congressman has nominated three loa candidates and seven non-loa candidates.......are the three loa candidates a zero, one or three nomination charge against the congressman's ten nomination allotment to the service academy?

    (3) lastly, does anyone know of a real life example, and just not just specualtion, where a candidate got a loa but not a nomination.....and hence the candidate did not get an appointment to the service academy.....

    Thanks in advance with help on the three points above......

    Pasquinel.....

    I've answered your identical post in the USNA forum.

    I am aware of a situation in which a candidate did not receive a nomination from any MOC, so two academies activated his vice presidential nomination - he got his offer of appointment on that basis. If you have not filed for a VP nom with your academy of choice you might be well advised to do so asap.

    Isn't it too late to apply for VP nomination now?

    I know that about a week ago I received a letter from the office of the Vice President stating that I was in competition for a nomination to West Point. I think it may be late but I would contact your Admissions Rep. because it is mainly the Academy involved in the process.

    VP nom deadline

    The webite for VP Biden clearly states no applications will be considered if postmarked after 10/31. It is too late.
