    Do all applicants that have interviewed with a MOC receive a letter stating whether they did or did not receive a nomination or only those receiving them?

    Good question... I have been wondering the same thing. I just received a nomination from my Congressman and I found out via my USMA portal. I have not yet received an official letter from his office and I also have not received any sort of notification from my Senators.

    It depends on the MOC. There's no rule set in stone. They can do whatever they want. If you do receive a nomination, it's safe to say that someone is going to notify you of it. Either the MOC or your ALO/MALO/BGO. Worst comes to worse, you'll see it in your online application. But if you don't receive a nomination, you may or may not receive notification. That's up to your MOC. Eventually, your online application will say who you do have a nomination from; so you can deduce if a senator or representative's name isn't listed as your nomination, that you probably don't have one from them. FYI. From the time you interview to the time they make a decision and actually inform the academies, could be a soon as a couple days or as long as weeks. best of luck. mike...

    ^ If you don't mind me asking, when did he go for his interview? In other words, how soon did he hear about it after he did the interview?

    And was it senatorial/congressional? Thanks and Congrats.

    He interviewed 11/15/12 with our U.S. Representative's committee. In Saturday's call he was told to look for a letter and certificate to be in the mail shortly. Another local parent in these shoes last year told us it is unlikely that either our congressman or congresswoman's committees will now interview him (he hasn't heard from either) because they share info and will rarely award an additional nomination.

    In my experience, most (if not all) MOCs notify all candidates of their status. It could be a call or letter for a nom. For a non-nominatin, it's usually a letter. IMHO, it would be rude not to provide notification. How long it takes depends on the MOC.

    In some areas, if one MOC gives you a nom, you will automatically be turned down by your other MOCs. That is often not a reflection on your qualifications but a decision to ensure that as many constituents as possible receive at least one nom. So if you have one in those areas, you're unlikely to get two or more.

    MOC NOM

    Hi
    For my DS, he interviewed on Thursday...Had letter from MOC by Saturday...Posted on USAFA site by Wednesday. All in less than a week, but I am sure the LOA was a big factor.
    Regards
    John
