So a month ago I received a nomination to the Naval Academy and I am still a little confused on the process after you obtain a nomination. I know that each senator or member of congress can nominate up to 10 candidates for a single spot. What I was wondering is; can they nominate less than 10 canidates if the don't find enough qualified? Also if the academy finds someone from Chicago more qualified than someone from Cincinnati can they allow that candidate to fill that spot? Please any info you may have will be appreciated!
