I think I know the answer to this but just reaching for something better. If one of your MOC's currently has 5 midshipmen at USNA (I think that's the number?), you are just out of luck on the total number of possible nominations/appointments available to you? We have one Senate nomination. We should be very grateful for that and we are, but can't help wishing there would have been another one to shoot for, as we have read everything here about the benefits of having more than one nomination. We also know there is no guarantee we would have gotten that other one. I understand there is some "juggling" that can happen if you are fortunate enough to be favored by admissions/nominations, and other (very limited) possibilities like the VP - I guess that's the hope if you don't win your slate?
