    My congressmen handed out 15 nominations to the Academy this year. Does that me he has more slates then usual or does he still only have one spot for the academy?

    Hard to say. If he had 2 slots, which is possible in any given year, he could nominate up to 20 people. Most MOCs try to nominate as many as possible. If only 15 met the MOC's qualifications, it's possible that he/she only nominated 15 instead of 20.

    I've also heard that some MOCs will nominate the max 10 for one spot and tell other that they are "contingents" in case one or more of the 10 aren't qualified. However, the others don't have noms unless one of the "original" 10 aren't qualified (e.g., medically).

    It could be either of the above situations.

    It probably means he has two or more slots. But that's not really your concern unless he used principal or ranked nominations - which seems unlikely. Your goal was to secure a nomination. Let the NA figure out against which slot your appointment will be charged. If not the one/two/??? from your district then into the national pool you go. Good luck.

    Thank you for the help!

    Also, I was speaking to a current Mid and he told me I can check my status online, isn't that dod.tricare site? The site never loads on my computer.
