    If an loa is received by a candidate prior to his/her congressional interview, does that secure a congressional nomination when interviewed?

    No. It's likely that the MOC will give a nomination but it's not guaranteed. I recall hearing about folks in the past with an LOA but could not secure a nomination, therefore they did not attend the academy.

    Make sure that your MOC is aware that a LOA has been received. We faxed ours to the academy liasion in his office prior to the interview.
