    So I've received two nominations so far, one from senator brown in Ohio and one from my MOC. The nom from my MOC is for all 4 academies. Is there any significance to being nominated to all four? Principal nominee perhaps?

    No significance other than you know you were good enough on your MOCs slate to get all 4 nominations. Getting the senators NOM is more impressive since you had to be better than many more applicants.

    I have read it doesn't matter who nominates senator or congress as they both have the same weight, a nomination.

    Every separate nomination you receive is an additional spot that you can win. Like having three lottery tickets instead of just one. The first nomination is the most significant, as it gives you not only the chance to win that MOC spot, but also puts you into the competition to win a NWL spot as well, assuming you don't win the MOC spot. Only need one nomination to compete in the NWL.

    Flying8764, you are correct. A NOM is a NOM and you only need one no matter the source. But, having more than one increases your odds for an appointment.

    Depends on where your from. Some states the congressmen/women release their noms first. If you're from one of those states where senators will not nominate anyone who already has a nom, then you may have been in their plan but then passed. I've read/heard several candidates who've received letters stating just that.

    At the end of the day all you need is one nom, doesn't matter who it's from'
