    Early November, I had an interview with my Congressman, and was given a nomination to the USNA. I had my interviews with my state's senators after the time I found out I got the nomination, but I just recieved a letter from one Senator's office saying I was extremely qualified. However, they saw I had a nomination from my congressman, and didn't want to "Double Nominate" candidates. Therefore, I was denied the second nomination.

    Would this generally hurt my chances to get in to the Academy? Is a Senator's nomination 'better' than a Congressman's?

    The answers to your questions are very short and easy! :smile:

    First, you only need ONE nomination.
    Second, the academy doesn't care who gave it to you, just that you have ONE.

    So...to summarize:

    Won't impact you a bit!! :thumb:
