Good morning, SAF. In my state, our Members of Congress don't rank their nomination slates. That being said, I know of at least one nominee from my district holding an LOA, and we both have our Congressman and a Senator backing us, and the young man has the other Senator's nomination as well. Since Letters of Assurance are a guaranteed BFE pending a nomination, will I automatically lose the competition in one of the two slates, being thrown into the NWL? I don't have an LOA but have been informed by the Congressman's staffer that my file is highly competitive and by my FFR that my USMA file is "admissible." Can anyone shed light? Thank you and Merry Christmas!
