My son had originally been - USNA or bust! Now, after attending both SLS and NASS he loves both academies equally. However, coming from NY, the senators and congressman require that he choose his nom requests as follows: Senator 1 - "Choose one academy only" (he chose USNA at that time of application) Senator 2 - "Choose primary academy and alternate" (he chose USNA as primary and USMA as secondary). Congressman - Suggested (not mandated) to check only one academy, and not state a pecking order, but has stated that only up to one nom will be granted (so my son checked USNA). As a rule, both senators and congressman will give a max of one nom each to one candidate. And of course the VP provides for a pecking order, and he chose; 1 - USNA 2 - USMA 3 - USAFA Now here's the issue; my son already received an LOA from the USMA. At this point, it seems that since the USMA is a known entitiy, and his complete application for the USNA is still in the dark abyss, he is hot for the USMA. I told him that he does not have to take sides yet, and I am not putting any stickers on my car windows yet! I have not taken sides either. They both are outstanding academies and should not be compared against each other except for football. If he happens to get an LOA from the USNA, I am going to suggest he pray on it and have God provide the answer. Well anyway, does he need to change anything with regard to his nomination requests with regard to his choices, or will this be reconciled during the interview process in November? Also, I assume he should send a copy of the USMA LOA to the three MOCs, right? Will the USMA LOA create confusion with the MOCs that are holding his USNA nomination request? Please help me out with this. Thanks.
