My DS just received his LOA in the mail yesterday indicating that he has been accepted to USMMA pending congressional nomination. He has had one interview so far and will have two others within the next month (with senators / congressman). I am just trying to get a feel for the likelihood of him receiving a nomination. In other words, which is harder -- getting the LOA or getting the nomination? How excited should he be that he has gotten his LOA? What percentage of applicants receive a LOA but then do not get the nomination?
