    I applied to all 3 academies and received a LOA from Naval, I feel confident I will get into the other two. However, I only received a nomination to Air Force from my district rep despite having a copy of the Naval LOA on hand at the interview.
    After realizing I did not receive the nom I contacted admissions and left a message.
    The next day I received a call and was told not to worry about the nomination, and that it would be handled by Admissions.

    Is there anyone with an understanding of how the whole backdoor nom thing works? It would just alleviate a little bit of stress for me.

    Thank you very much.

    you could obtain a Supe's Nom. This would be rare, but if the admissions office said that they would handle it, then I would not stress over this. Either way, it sounds like you have a very solid file if you have received an LOA, so do not worry, no academy is a compromise.
