    It is my first choice to attend the US Naval Academy. For both my Maryland senators and my congressmen I listed USNA as #1 on the "order of preferences". However, it is extremely competitive to get a nomination to the Naval Academy in Maryland. I listed West Point as my 2nd choice for two of the congressman as well as the Vice-President. As I found out today, I did not receive any nomination from one of my senators. Therefore, I have only two small chances to receive a nomination to West Point. If I do not get accepted to USNA or get a nomination to West Point through any of the remaining two sources (1 congressmen and VP), is there still any way that I can get an alternate form of a nomination to attend West Point?

    Thanks

    you still have a senator, congressman, and the VP if I'm reading this correctly. From what I remember, the MD senators coordinate their noms so they don't both give the same person a nom. Hopefully you've got good news coming here in the next few weeks.

    Hang in there....

    Since I don’t know your background, I couldn’t give you any idea. But if you are someone extremely exceptional that WP can not go without-for example; star quarterback in your state, perfect ACT/SAT score, current enlisted with a bronze star. You may get a Supe endorsement.

    If you don’t fall into that arena, I truly feel for you. I would like to encourage you to continue to look for opportunities to increase your chances for next year. Look into a private prep schools-NWP,NMMI, MMI. Continue to take the ACT/SAT test and increase your scores. Plan on attending a 2-year or 4-year school and take classes that are similar to first year classes of a first year cadet. And also apply for ROTC scholarships.

    Good Luck

    Also, I am 3'QD and have a LOE to USMA. I have already had my MOC interview. If I show the MOC the LOE now, would that increase my chances of him giving me a nomination to USMA? Would that hurt my chances for my first choice (USNA)?

    It might, but you have to decide if you'd rather attend USNA above all else and possibly wait a year, still with no guarantee, or get a nom to WP from one moc and still maybe get a USNA nom from another.
