    Hey everyone,

    My candidate portal displayed that I had received a nomination from Congressman Lance (NJ-07) on January 4th. I have no idea about where I stand on the slate or what kind of slate Congressman Lance uses for nominations. Now, we wait.

    Good luck to anybody in the same boat as I, and congratulations to all New Jersey candidates who have received their appointments! Go Army!

    It doesn’t necessarily work like this. A applicant from NJ cannot be charged to a MOC in say Wyoming. If a MOC does not submit a person deemed qualified, they will not have a candidate charged this year and will have two openings next year. This extra seat would be filled as an Additional Appointee at the end of the process. The academy is allowed to pick from qualified applicants to meet the class composition goals.

    Yes it is not a direct nomination however it still requires a nomination and I believe you can eventually find out who's MOC slot was used to fill it by the Academy. Regardless the net effect is that NJ fills roughly 4 times their allotted Candidates.
