Thank you for the reply! So my MOC had two fully vacant spots and I got both or them? I'm not entirely sure what that means. Can you please explain further? Thank you again!No glitch. I might have an improper explanation, but to my knowledge your MOC had two slots available and you got a nom from both slots!! Congrats!
Last year my son recieved two nominations to USMA from the same senator, who had two open slots. He also had one from our congressman. We never were able to figure out which nomination West Point used. They like having options, and it doesn't matter at all to the candidate. It's a good thing though for sure.Thank you for the reply!

I think the MOC can submit ten names for one slot, and ten for another, or could submit up to twenty total names and let USMA figure it out. I didn't think that they could give twenty names for each slot though. In my son's case, he was listed as a name on each of our senator's two slots. It surprised us, but we certainly didn't complain. He already had his appointment from USMA before that senators nominations appeared on his portal though, as he already had received another nomination from our congressman. Son's RC told us he didnt know which nomination would be applied at the time, because they like the flexibility to be able to use one or two of the slots on other candidates. So, unless a candidate has only one nomination, you never really know which nomination is being applied.Interesting. So, if a congressman has 2 open slots he has 20 available nominations. Does he pick which 10 candidates are on each slate?
I was thinking that all 20 would be competing against each other instead of only 10 per slate competing against each other.
