    You should be applying to your 2 Senators, your Congressional Representative (i.e., 3 MOCs) and the Vice President, at a minimum. If your father/mother qualifies then you should also be looking for a Presidential nom. And, if you have JROTC at your school, you could also pursue a nomination via that route.

    At a minimum, everyone has the 3 MOCS and VP as potential sources.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Thanks for the answer, wish i could get the presidential but none of my parents served, and im in college with no NROTC(its a junior college) so can't get those nominations, have already begun the nominations for the senators and the congressman, as well as the vice president.

    I just wanted to know because i was wondering if i could apply to more representatives or just my district.

    My understanding is that a congressman/congresswoman can only offer a nomination to a candidate who resides within their specific district.

    From our Congressman's Academy website: (Jeff Denham - 10th Congressional District)
    What are the basic eligibility requirements?

    Each applicant for a nomination must meet the following eligibility requirements as of July 1st of the year of admission to an academy:
    •Age: Be at least 17 years old, but not have passed the 23rd birthday
    •Citizenship: Must be a U.S. citizen
    •Marital Status: Must be unmarried, not pregnant, and without legal obligation to support children or other dependents
    •Residence: Must reside within the boundaries of the 10th Congressional District of California.
    •Skill / Fitness: Must meet the medical, physical, and academic requirements of the Academy.

    Since we don't know which SA, I think we need to place caveats.

    I might be wrong, but I believe USMMA allows you to apply to EVERY MOC in your state. It is the only SA that allows this option.
    ~ Not swearing, but that is my recollection from my time on this forum.
    ~ You can get a commission out of USMMA for Active Duty branches.

    CGA of course does not require any MOC.

    There are also some options for enlisted members of service should you choose to go that route.
