    I was one of the lucky candidates to receive and LOA and I was deemed medically cleared, but I lack a nomination.

    I am not eligible for a presidential nomination.

    I recently had an interview with individuals from Interim Senator Chiesa's office (NJ) and was denied. I am trying not to get discouraged, because I want this more than anything in the world.

    Can anyone give me specific tips on how to handle the interview. I was very uncomfortable as I had never been interviewed before Chiesa(my BGO interview was more of a lecture). How can I improve my chances for next time? What is definitely positive to say(the truth obviously, but beyond that), and what is a no-go?

    Any tips are much appreciated, and I can add any credential information if requested.

    I would ask the mods to move this to the NOM threads. You will get a larger response than just USNA.

    You may have not received that nom., but have you found out if the MOCs spread the wealth?

    IOW, the senators and congressman talk so there are no duplicates on their slates.
    ~~~ It may have not been the interview per se, but their system for nominating.

    Finally, nobody can give you an answer to your question if we don't what was asked!

    Why do you want to go to USNA?
    Well, I have an LOA and only need a nom. That would mean I have a free education and only owe 5 yrs after I graduate.

    I know that is a extreme, but you get the point.

    Unless we know where you felt that you were weak, we can't truly guide you IMPO.
