How does the selection process compare at the Academy versus the MOCs? I assume the MOC nomination is statistically harder to get than the appointment? And of course the Senators are more competitive than the congresspeople. Therefore, if you are a competitive nomination candidate with a Senator, your Academy chances have to be above average, right? Just trying to get a handle on this whole thing. Seems like the interview/application for the moc (at least in the more competitive states) is more "important" than the Academy one.
