    Folks, been told many different things we are wondering if there is a quota for appointments per state based on the students currently enrolled in the AFA?

    Please clear this up.

    Thanks

    Each moc is allowed up to 5 cadets, charged to them, at the academy at any one time. Mind you I said charged. Those who didn't get their moc slot, but got an appointment in the national pool, do not count towards the 5 for the moc. Even though they must have a nomination, national pool doesn't count towards the 5. There is not quota other than approximately half the class are moc slots. From the national pool, if the academy wanted to, they could appoint the remaining 300+ from the national pool, all from Texas if the seemed fit. Its unlikely, but allowed. In general, there are about 550 moc slots. About 150-200 military slots. The remaining 300+ are suppose to come from the national pool and prep school. Where they live is irrelevant. Whoever has the highest scores.

    thanks

    So each of the two senators have 5 appointed at one time, do each of the representatives have 5 as well?

    As I understand it - each MOC may have only 5 charged to them for each academy at any time - so today, for example, if there were 2 appointees in one class and 1 in each in the other classes at a given Academy and one was to graduate then there would be 1 slot available in that Academy for that year. The MOC could nominate 10 candidates for the Academy to choose from for that one slot. The MOC may indicate a Primary candidate and/or have all 10 listed as Competitive Candidates - regardless, the Academy in question gets to select the candidate for appointment.

    Most of what you said is correct. One correction. If the moc lists a principal nominee, and that person is qualified, the the academy has NO CHOICE. They must take the principal nominee.
