DS received competitive noms to USNA from both Senators and Congresswoman - 3 total (Yeaaaa - what a blessing!!). Plus he's eligible for Pres. nom. My understanding is that the USNA will look at each nom pool separately, and if not competitive will then go to national pool. My question is, is the process blind to the number of noms, or does the fact that he received all three noms give him a more favorable standing than someone with only one nom (other than he competes in more than one small pool)?
