    I am a letter of assurance recipient to usna and I live in a competitive district. I just heard back from my two senators and I have not received a nomination. My interview for the congressman was OK at best, however my packet for him was very strong, also my teachers showed me their recommendations and they were great as well. Will my LOA balance out my "meh" interview, and should I tell them I did not receive a nomination from my senators?

    Definitely let the MOC and their staff running interviews that you have one. That may allow them to place another principal nom from their district and place you on the slate with the other 10. That way they get two potential appointments. You get a nom, keep yourself eligible and get the appointment. They can nominate a principal nom that gets charged to them.

    Good luck

    You're entire impression of your interview may be wrong. The LOA may balance out the "meh" interview as you say... only time and patience will tell. In the meantime apply for the VP nom if you haven't already. You just need a nom and the source doesn't matter.

    No. If your Rep cares, he/she already knows. IOW, in some states the Sens and Reps get together on noms; in that case, your Rep knows. In other states, each MOC does his/her own thing; in that case, the MOC won't care about the others.
