Normally, the more nominations you have, the better. It is better to be on 2 slates of nominees than 1. In some states, the congressmen/senators coordinate to specifically avoid multiple nominations for a candidate.
However, if a candidate has an LOA in hand, any
nomination will suffice. One is enough.
So, to answer your question, there really is no longer any need to waste time and energy trying to earn more
nominations if you already have one along with an LOA
Instead of allowing your nomination file to go inexplicably incomplete, I would call the MOC's office and politely explain your status (having both an LOA and
a presidential nomination) and explain, because of that, you will not be completing your file.
Instead of writing essays, collecting recommendations, and filling out forms for the MOCs - go jogging, do some push-ups and sit-ups in preparation for Plebe Summer. Study hard and stay out of trouble. It looks like you're going to be in the Class of 2018, to me. Congratulations!
