    What are the MOC interviews? I went to SLS and got an interview by my SGT. (West Point Cadet) and I was never called by West Point to get an interview. Can someone explain to me what this interview is for and if I should be concerned that I have yet gotten one?

    MOC = Member of Congress
    Your Congressman, 2 Senators, and the Vice- President - all of whom you are qualified to receive nominations from and hopefully all whom you have applied for nominations from.
    The MOC interviews are for the MOC nominations. Totally unrelated to the interview you had at SLS.
    Once you apply for the MOC nominations, you will be contacted by the MOCs that require an interview (not all interview).

    me1fan, have you applied for the nominations yet?

    Also, I know that some MOCs have already done interviews (and awarded nominations), but I also know that some MOCs are only starting their interview and nomination process now. If you have any doubts, I suggest you contact (preferably through the phone?) the people responsible for Service Academy nominations from your nomination sources (note that I'm only a candidate... but that's what I did, and it worked out for me).

    Note that not all MOCs do interviews, but make sure you're on top of everything!

    Good luck me1fan! Hopefully we'll meet at BEAST!

    Contact your congressman and senators right away. They may each have different procedures to follow to get an interview. It may be too late, or soon will be. Get on it.

    I just received notification from one of my senators, Boozman, Arkansas. Still haven't heard anything from my Congressman or other Senator. Nervous for the interview next Friday.

    I think everyone is nervous. My interview is next week and I'm nervous thinking about it!
