    Hello,

    This past week I received my appointment to the USNA with a nomination from my district's Congressman. Although my State nominations have not been released yet, is there any way I can/will receive nominations from these individuals?

    I know it doesn't matter for my own application, as I already have an offer of appointment. I am just curious as to how the system works. If there are already threads on this subject (I know it's heavily covered) I apologize.

    You could still earn more nominations. USNA could move you around between slates that you are qualified for. Where one thinks they may get charged and where they get charged can often differ.

    My son had three noms. Local MOC, 1 Senator (they do joint nom interviews so expected only one) and a Presidential.

    My DS had other nominations arrive weeks after he received his Offer of Appointment.

    If you've received your offer of appointment, it would be good form to contact your other MOC nominating sources and let them know. If they've not submitted their slates, it may free up a spot for someone else.

    Also, to be clear, someone should do this ONLY if they have an appointment in hand -- not another nom, not waiting for the appointment to arrive, etc.

    Finally, the number of noms any candidate could theoretically receive varies by the candidate. Almost everyone is eligible for 4 -- the 3 MOCs and the VP - but you're almost certain not to get a VP nom if you have a nom from another source. Some candidates may be eligible for more, based on their circumstances, such as Presidential, ROTC, child of deceased/fully disabled veteran, etc.
