    The person from my congressional district turned down their appointment to USNA. when do the MOCs find out if they have two slots or one for USNA for the class of 2017? I am assuming USNA Admissions board went to the waitlist but if there was no one on the waitlist from our congressional district it may stay open and two slots will be available next year. Can someone correct me on this?

    Everything u said is correct, but only your MOC who's list had the turned down appointment will know. They could have had their #2 nominee given the appointment or they will have 2 slots next year. No one here knows that answer. Only your MOC will know that.

    It depends on how they did their slate. If it was prioritized, they are entitled to having their slate filled. If they just sent a competitive list, they basically give up their entitlement to the academy to choose. If the slot is turned down, the academy might not fill from their slate but instead give to someone else nationally. believe it or not, most MOCS don't know or don't make the time to fight for their slots. But many are getting upset with the academy and are demanding their slots be filled according to the law. I don't know where your MOC stands. But after BCT is over, and the noob become real cadets, then the actual nominations are charged. Then the MOC knows what they have for next year.
