    First of all let me get this out of the way; I have read many nomination threads, but I still don't get it.

    In summary, I believe each MOC can have 5 constituents in each academy at any time. I also think there are 3 types of slates: principal, ranked, and unranked. I thought that for each MOC slate, one nomination would be given, but when I read Senator X's press release from last year, it appears that he has granted nominations for ten folks to each academy. I am guessing the type of slate has something to do with this, but do all ten folks have nominations?

    In very general terms - All 10 on the slate have a nomination. #1 on the list gets the vacancy. The other 9 still have a nomination and will go on the NWL and hope to get an appointment off the NWL.

    Shelby and Sessions both submit competitive slates. I'll use West Point as an example. They submit their slate of 10 names to WP. With a competitive slate, WP will rank the candidates that are on the slate top to bottom by WCS. The candidate with the highest WCS will fill the vacancy for that MOC. The other 9 still have a nomination. They were nominated by the MOC. They will be put on the NWL and which is ranked top to bottom by WCS of other candidates nationwide who did not get their MOC's vacancy.

    That is a very basic explanation. There are many twists and turns and ifs and buts.

    The three type of slates are: Competitive, Principal with ranked alternates and Principal with unranked alternates.

    That helps a lot. So no matter the type of slate, all the folks that make the slate for a MOC receive a nomination. That would account for the 9X - 10X number of MOC nominations vs appointments charged to a MOC. Thanks for pushing me over the hump :thumb:

    Nominations from AL

    Do Shelby and Sessions require an interview for a nomination? Do you know if any of the congressman do? Thanks for your help!

    Shelby and Sessions don't interview.
    Some of the Congressmen do interview, but not all.
