Hi I have received a LOA from USAFA but I'm waiting on a congressional nomination. My congressmen said that he has one top nomination that gets in no matter what and nine alternates, but he said that he had 19 in to one academy last year. How does that work? Has anyone ever gotten an LOA but not a nomination? and If I don't get the nomination what happens? Or should I worry at all? I've applied for the VP nomination as well.
