    On My state rep website it states "There are three methods of nominating, and I use the competitive method. For each vacancy, ten nominations may be made on a strictly competitive basis. The competitive method provides that the nominees compete among themselves for final appointment determined by the admissions authorities."

    does this mean the MOC sends in a list of ten to the SA and the SA picks one from the ten.

    Or does this mean the MOC puts them in order and the tops goes to the SA (assuming they are 3Qd) When I asked the MOC's Secretary she said the nominations committee picks the ten and she said she "thinks they rank them" but she wasnt sure.

    This means the MOC sends in a list of ten nominees to the SA and the SA picks one from the ten to charge to any available vacancy that MOC has. In other words in the average year that would mean one vacancy(each MOC can have 5 charged appointees at the SA at any time) and every so often there would be 2 available in a given year. From what I have read this is the most common form of nomination. Each of the ten is considered to be nominated but only one can be charged to that MOC slot.

    thanks

    thanks for that info that clears things up.

    a follow up ?

    the MOC said they have 2 for USAF, 1 for USMA and 1 for USNA

    what would explain the 2 for USAF but 1 for the others?

    They are allowed 5 constituents charged to them per academy at any given time.

    So for whatever reason only 3 spots will be taken, leaving 2 open. Could be 2 graduating in the class of 2012, or 1 graduating and 1 left the academy, or ?
