    Today a person I share a nomination with received an appointment to USAFA. This is the only nom I have to USAFA so it would be my understanding that both of us cannot be appointed unless there is two slots open for my congressman's nomination, which I am unsure if there is or not. So is this possibly the end for me?

    A. Is it the only nomination the other person has too?
    B. Only about half of the appointments come from those nomination slates.

    In other words, yes you still have a chance. How? Simple. Like I said, only half of the appointments come from the Mocs nomination slates where the Mocs are charged for the appointment. The remaining 9 individuals from that slate who didn't get the appointment, go into a national pool, where approximately 40% of appointments come from. The other 10% are to military related nominations.
