I know that some Senators and Congressmen/women give out un-ranked nomination slates, but if you receive a principle nomination does that mean that you are accepted as long as you meet the basic requirements of the USAFA? My Congressman gives out principle nom's (1 principle nomination and 9 qualified alternates), and I have been asked by the offices of both of my Senator's to inform them if I receive the principle nomination so they don't "waste" a nomination on me (both simply submit 10 names un-ranked). If it's true that you're all set with a principle nom, then I will do this, but I also don't want to hurt my chances because I have received unofficial assurances that I will receive nominations from both Senator's and my Congressman (Congressman did not indicate if I was principle nominee, but it seems likely). What should I do? Is there anyone who knows and answer with absolute certainty?
