    What if a MOC nominates only one person; uses competitive method so does not designate as primary; and person is qualified for admission. Do they get an appointment to USMA?

    A person must be fully qualified to receive an appointment to the service academies. In addition to receiving a nomination, they must be scholastically qualified (includes academics and ECAs) and medically qualified. If a person is the only nominee from a Congressional district AND they are otherwise fully qualified, AND they don't have any background issues (bad police record, for instance), then, yes, they should receive an appointment.

    How often does that happen? Not just for West Point, but for any SA?

    Well, it certainly does/can happen - just depends on how competitive your area is (or is not as the case may be!). I know in our district this year there is only one completed file for WP, and as of now the MOC has not yet submitted a nomination for that candidate. My son started his file, but decided on AF and Navy and got nominations to both of those. Is it possible someone will end up with that slot? Guess we'll see!
