Hi all, I've applied to both USNA and USAFA directly. I also applied for nominations from my congressman and one of my senators. I was asked to rank my choices for academies, and did ON BOTH NOMINATION APPLICATIONS in the following manner: 1. USNA 2. USAFA 3. USMA 4. USMMA (At the time, I truly felt this way.) Was this a mistake? Should I have sent different preferences to each of the nominating sources? I feel like that would have been dishonest. The reason I must ask is because I've been nominated to USNA by my congressman. I do not need another USNA nomination from my senator. In fact, I need a USAFA nomination from her. But I indicated to her office that USNA was my first choice and USAFA was my second choice. I asked her office if I could change my preferences, and the answer I got was a no. This leaves me with three questions: - Will my Senator's office realize that I'm already nominated to USNA, thus hesitating to give me a nomination their and give it to another deserving candidate? - Will my Senator's office realize that I have completed an application to USAFA and now need a nomination there more than I need a nomination to USNA? - If I'm nominated again to USNA, can I ask one of my nominating sources to change that nomination to a USAFA one? I'm truly stressed out over this issue because the more I really look deep in to both of the services, I realize that the Air Force has much more appeal to me than the Navy. I would be proud and willing to serve in the Navy, but the Air Force has now become my first choice. Thank you for advice!
