--> which one is that again?
Oh that makes me even more calm!
I don't know if this is appropriate, but do you (or anyone) have an idea how many people 'get picked out of the pool'?
ps- does that mean one doesn't actually have a nomination, or does that mean one gets given a [random] nomination by the Academy?
Each Senator, Representative, and Delegate in Congress, including the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, is entitled to nominate 10 persons for each vacancy that is available to him under this section. Nominees may be submitted without ranking or with a principal candidate and 9 ranked or unranked alternates. Qualified nominees not selected for appointment under this subsection shall be considered qualified alternates for the purposes of selection under other provisions of this chapter.
Just_A_Mom said:The Superintendent of the academy may also nominate up to 50 persons each year.
