Son is a competitive racing sailor who has long sought an opportunity to attend U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. As he prepared for his congressional nomination interview, he had several conversations with USNA alums and students, and added USNA as an academy choice. MOC letter arrived Friday (11/18) with both USMMA AND USNA nominations. He has not, however, begun a USNA application. Is it too late to begin? Will USNA knowledge of his pre-existing MOC nomination help? Appreciate any information.
