I recently found out that I have received a nomination from my Congressman. Even more recently, I found out that another person I know of also received a nomination from the same source; she is a recruited athlete. Typically speaking, when the nomination slate is in, the candidate with the highest whole score is selected, correct? So a good rule of thumb is one-candidate-per-slate. Since the girl is a recruited athlete, she will most likely receive her appointment. How will this affect me, if at all? Do recruited athletes "count" as a slate's candidate and will I sub-sequentially be entered into the national pool? Or do they not count as the sources appointment?
