Months ago, when DS filled out his MOC applications, he put down USMMA as his second choice. He has not and will not be applying there. Prior to his MOC interviews, he decided he only wanted USNA and if that didn't work out, he would pursue Plan B, Plan C etc. When he went to his second MOC interview, it was mentioned to him by a panel member, that he had USMMA as his second choice. DS told the panel member he no longer considered that academy. DS watched the person cross it off on the paper. Four days later, he received a phone message at home stating that he didn't receive his first choice USNA but was being nominated for his second choice, USMMA... he was also told to continue to pursue a nomination to his first choice. Tonight DS received an email from his third MOC interview stating he was nominated for USNA, his first choice!! So, now the dilemma....should he contact the MOC that nominated him for USMMA and let them know he has no intentions of taking the nomination? If he gives up his nomination, could someone else possibly benefit and receive his "spot"? He would love to help someone else out! Any advice would be appreciated!
