    Do they start reviewing the packets at the final due date or when they first arrive???

    Ask your MOC. Each is different. There r no rules. They can do it any way they want.

    Caveat, to Mike's post, NOMs are not like rolling admissions. You can have your paperwork in tomorrow, but the slate will not come out until AFTER the close date.

    Yes, they can review them, but don't expect a nom before the deadline.

    Two different things.

    caveat to Pima's caveat. Some small (population) states like mine; have 2 senators and 1 representative. We haven't had 30 nominees (applicants) for 10 each as long as I can ever remember. In the average cycle, we will have about 20-25 eligible/qualified candidates who can receive nominations. Usually, around 7 will withdraw. So usually around 15-16 actually are receiving nominations. Most candidates will receive 2 nominations. Some get all 3.

    Basically; if you qualify, you'll get a nomination. As such, some have received a nomination earlier than the deadline for submitting the application for a nomination. Especially if a candidate receives an LOA, it's not uncommon for one of the MOC's to give one of their 10 nominations to them early.

    Mind you, we're talking about a place where there aren't a lot of people. We don't have a 100 applicants for 1 representative or 200 for an entire state. We have 3 moc's; usually around 15-16 getting nominations. So giving some early (For a reason) isn't a problem. That's why I say to check with your MOC. Each one is different. If your MOC is in a district that rarely ever gets an applicant (There are some like that), they will give a nomination early on to entice you to take it. Especially if you don't have much competition and you're almost guaranteed an appointment.
