Hello all - has anyone ever heard of a SA contacting a MOC and telling them they are going to use a PRES NOM (if available) and that they don't have to interview that applicant anymore? My DD received a call from our MOC rep today stating that they got an email from the USAFA that they were using her PRES NOM. and that they are giving her her an appointment (although we haven't received a BFE from the USAFA to confirm). The MOC rep did this as a courtesy call because he said that there's a good chance the other MOC's (Senators) from our state might not even interview her even though she listed the USNA as her top choice since they'll know she's got a PRES NOM. The MOC rep said our Congressman will still move forward with the interview because he knows my DD really wants to go to USNA. Has anyone ever heard of this before? Why would MOC's not continue with the interview even though we listed the USNA as the 1st choice or do you think the rep is just guessing? I"m concerned because our state is one of the most competitive for the USNA and although she's got a PRES NOM, i've read that a MOC NOM would make her more competitive and make her application look "better"? Any gouge would be greatly appreciated!!
