    I was wondering how to know whether or not you are a principal or alternative nominee? I have received 3 nominations in my state (Both Senators and District). However, I am not sure whether I have received principal or alternative.

    There's no way to tell on the portal. You may have to look at any press release-type materials and see if they say anything. Or even ask the congressional office - there are arguments for and against doing that. Either way, a nom is a nom!

    The MOC office may not use the terms precisely and you could perhaps get bad info, even if you did ask. I know of someone where the MOC press release said they APPOINTED that person to USNA when in fact the correct term should have been NOMINATED. So even some MOC offices don't use the terms correctly. If you are the principal NOM is a great thing, other then that, it really doesn't matter.

    Either way, there is no need to worry...being fully qualified with a principal nomination doesn't necessarily equate to appointment.
