    All my reading seems to indicate that candidates who successfully graduate from a SA prep school and have received a nomination are virtually guaranteed an appointment to the SA.

    If said candidate is on the same MOC slate of 10 candidates (competitive), is it likely that they will be slated to the MOC? Is it doomed for the other 9?

    For the sake of this thread, let's just assume the other 9 are all 3Q candidates.

    The following link was posted on another thread a few days ago and has some useful/interesting information:

    http://www.usna.edu/AboutAIS/nominations.html#Nomination Reports

    The text relevant to your question is pasted below. I surmise from this that if you are nominated and have a high whole candidate multiple than you will get an appointment since the "charging" or "slotting" of candidates to nominating sources looks like it actually occurs after I-day for everyone other than NAPSters.

    "How to Charge Nominations

    Starting in the end of May, incoming plebes are charged against one of their nominations, even though they may have received and been qualified for more than one nomination.
    After the NAPS Admissions Board, all incoming NAPSters with a principal nomination or a Congressional nomination are charged against their nominator source’s vacancies.

    Then approximately 170 NAPSters are charged with SECNAV nominations (Regular Navy/Marine Corps, Navy/Marine Corps Reserves). Any remaining incoming NAPSters are charged as Qualified Alternates (QA).

    After Induction Day, the process of manually charging the rest of the incoming class is accomplished. Those eligible for nominations from other than the Congressional sources are charged. Then the congressional charging takes place by state.

    The Candidate Status by Vacancy (2603) report is run to verify which plebes have not yet been charged throughout the process. After all congressional charges have been made, the remaining plebes are charged as Qualified Alternates. NAPSters may be charged against another nominator source or as a Qualified Alternate (QA) rather than as a SECNAV nomination.

    Business Rules used in Charging Nominations

    If the nomination is a numbered alternate, charge the principal nominee to the vacancy if the prospective midshipman has accepted the appointment. Otherwise, charge the highest numbered alternate who has accepted an appointment.
    If the nomination is competitive alternate to a principal, charge the principal nominee to the vacancy if the prospective midshipman has accepted the appointment. Otherwise, charge the competitive alternate nominee with highest multiple who has accepted an appointment.
    If the nomination is competitive, charge the prospective midshipman with highest multiple who accepted appointment to the vacancy. In the case of a candidate having more than one congressional nomination, work with the nomination with the earliest date of receipt.

    All nominator sources other than Congressional are charged in the following priority:

    Nominator Number of Appointments
    Source Allowed per Year

    Presidential 100
    Vice Presidential 1
    Superintendent 50
    Regular Navy/Marine Corps 85
    Navy/Marine Corps Reserves 85
    Honor Military, NROTC,
    NJROTC, MCJROTC 20
    Children of Medal of Honor winners unlimited
    Children of Deceased or Disabled veterans unlimited
    Qualified Alternate Remaining appointees"

    Thank you for this very detailed composite of information!

    However, after reading through all of it, I don't find that I understand any further regarding my question.

    Does a current NAPster, one who is graduating this year (not one who just received an appointment to NAPS), get charged against the MOC slate?
    If so, is there no hope for the other 9 candidates that were nominated?
    (10 candidates nominated by MOC...1 is graduating from NAPS)

    From the info in my prior post it looks like the NAPster (this is referring to those who finished NAPs and are now appointed to USNA) would get charged to the congressperson on a slate of 10. However, my point above was that the other 9 on the slate should not think that they are "doomed". If you have a high whole person multiple than you should get an appointment (even if you are not "charged" to the MOC that nominated you). Because admissions doesn't "charge" mids against MOCs until after I-day, it follows that they are looking more at whole person multiple rank at the time appointments are handed out and less at specific district/state. This also makes sense in the context that many posts on this forum have referenced multiple appointments coming from the same high school and same congressional district.

    Others/moderators may have more to add..... hope that clarifies for you.

    Anyone else??

    I so would love to understand the whole nomination process, so if anyone else has anything to offer on this subject, I would be very appreciative.
    Thank you!
