My son received his LOA from the USNA yesterday. He has completed all application requirements except for the nomination. We are beyond thrilled! We live in Illinois and have sent application packets this summer to the 3 MOC's but they will not be making decisions/doing interviews until later this month and in December. From what I understand, because he has an LOA, they will not have to use their principal slot for him so that means he is much more likely to receive a nomination. Can someone tell me if this is indeed the case? Has anyone heard of kids receiving an LOA and then NOT getting a nomination? Thanks in advance!
