    has anyone been able to find out how many charges a particular senator or congressman has per nominating class? We are in PA 12 and I’m assuming there is one available but I’m not basing that on anything but assumption. I also saw an old (2012) chart that showed how many nominations for each SA were submitted by district but I can’t find any more recent data. I know in general PA is competitive, but not sure about district 12 specifically (USAFA and USMA are the two SAs my DS has nominations for).

    The data you referred to was obtained by the Assoiated Press via a FOIA request. Every summer the academies inform each MOC of their vacancies, but to the best of my knowledge this information is not normally published.

    MOC can submit 10 NOM's for each opening they have. Since you can only apply for a MOC NOM based on your legal residence, I am not sure how knowing these figures helps anyone now applying. Variations of the OP's question seems to get asked frequently, but really has nothing to do with how/when/why you apply. Even if you get a NOM from your MOC, the SA may eventually charge it somewhere else and once you have an appointment, it won't really matter.

    I doubt a MOC would go through the exercise of the NOM application process if they had -0- NOM's to give.

    You may ask your MOC office liason - its not a state secret. Last year our MOC staff was pretty open about this on interview day.
    They may or may not choose to share info but I don't see harm in asking.
