    I just have a question about the nominations. I received a principal nomination from my congressman and I know that 10 people can be selected for the slate for one vacancy. Does that mean all 10 people have the nomination or just the #1 slot?
    To clarify: If you are #5 on the slate for example- is this considered a nomination?
    Sorry about the confusion I just wanted to understand this better. Thanks!

    Hi K2010,

    If you were told by your MOC that you are getting their principle nomination, that means your MOC ranks his/her nominations and you have been selected as the person he/she is nominating. The MOC can nominate up to nine additional persons as alternates, either ranked or unranked. This means if you are offered an appointment and don't accept, then either the next ranked nominee is selected or if unranked, then the academy decides who fills the spot from among the alternates nominated by the MOC.

    Thanks GoNavyMom! I just wasn't sure about the other 9 people on the list; if they were considered nominations or alternatives to the first ranked slot (kind of hard to explain my initial confusion but I understand now). I also found another post in USMA thread that helped me understand the whole nomination process as well.
