DS, current USNA Foundation prep student, has secured a nomination from his Congressman. Do any of you know how this affects that Congressman’s unranked slate – eg. If there is only one open spot for this MOC at USNA and the prep student receives the appointment (notification is usually mid-April for sponsored preps), is the MOC charged for that? Or does the prep student automatically get put in some other category, like the National Pool? Or some other third thing?
