    I am applying to the USNA and am in Western NY. I have my Congresswoman interview this weekend and my Senator Gillibrand interview next week. Haven't heard from Senator Schumer. Has anyone?

    I'm just a little confused on how a nomination works. I have heard of a principle nomination, and have no clue what it means. And a slate of 10 nominations, whats that? If I get on the slate of 10 nominations, do I have a nomination?

    Also, people have said that if you get a principle nomination, you automatically are guaranteed an appointment. Is that true?

    Please clarify. Thanks.

    I think the stickies at the top of this forum are a good place to start.

    if you look at the threads you will see the 3 different types of nomination slates. DS has local congressman interview on Sat and like you, Senator Gillibrand next Wed in Syracuse. DS has not heard from Schumer. Gillibrand will use an unranked slate of 10. Getting one of the 10 slots means you have a nomination, but leaves the choice up to the academy as to who they want to give that MOC's charged nomination to. If I have read these posts correctly, each year there are many candidates who are tripple Q'd with a nomination, but fail to get an appointment. If you can secure a primary nomination from a MOC and are otherwise qualified, you have to be given an appointment from what I have read.
