I am applying to both West Point and the Naval Academy, and as of right now I have received a Letter of Assurance to the Naval Academy. In the letter it states that all that is necessary for my "guaranteed offer of appointment" is a nomination. Would it be better if I used my JROTC nomination (Honor unit w/ Distinction) for the Naval Academy? (I know that even if you aren't a congressman's principle nom, but you do have an LOA, the service academy will charge you for a different slot that isn't being used. Is it a similar process for JROTC nominations? Just getting nominated for the slot will suffice for an LOA?) So is my best choice to use the JROTC nom for USNA and apply for the Congressional one for West Point?
