    I have been nominated by one of my Senators to the USMA, and my Representative to West Point, the USAFA, and the Naval Academy. Is receiving multiple nominations bad because it limits how many others in your home area/state can receive them? Should I be in contact with the staffers of my legislators to explain and just have one nomination? I am concerned that it may be dishonorable to limit the opportunity of others who may have received a nomination because I have received multiple. Is it normal and encouraged to receive multiple? Thank you.

    It's not at all dishonorable. Many applicants hold multiple nominations as you do. The 10 best in the eyes of the MOC (or his/her committee) will receive the nominations. You earned yours. There is no need to feel guilty about anyone who wasn't selected for a nomination.

    A lot of the times, if they are struggling deciding who to give a nomination, they will talk amongst themselves and strategically give nominations only once among the senators and congressman. If they don't feel that they need to do that, then take them all! Only looks better for you!

    Daughter received USAFA nomination from Senate interview and her first choice was USNA. Just received USNA nomination after Representative interview. Just remember you earned all of the nominations. Good Luck and happy I Day. In our state the Senate Committee does request that you withdraw your request for nomination from the second Senate Interview if you get the nomination to the service academy you want from the first Senate interview.

    Multi NOMS

    Good for you!!! You did exactly what your are supposed to do. If you have genuine interest in an Academy, you seek a NOM and maximize your chances at receiving an appointment. You've past a major hurdle, but still have to cross the finish line. You've given yourself a good chance at getting one.
