    I understand that MOCs can decide how to submit their slates, but it appears that our congressman submitted a competitive slate for one academy and a principal nomination for another academy. Ours is a competitive state so this approach seems odd. Has anyone else experienced this type of an approach?

    Something similar to that happened to DS. In our state, the MOCs clearly communicate with one another. My DS recieved a "first alternate" (ie #2) from one Senator, then a personal interview invite from the other Senator (after which he recieved the "principle" nom), then a "competitive" from the congressman from our district. Talking with others in our state, we were led to believe this was par for the course with the senior senator getting "first pick" for his prinicple nom, then the other MOCs choose from the candidates left that did not get a prinicple.

    It also appears to vary by the SA in our state too, but perhaps (speculation) because of the small size of the pool for certain SAs like Kings Point.
