yep, I also have 2, that just means that less nominations are given out to more people! meaning that if (e.g) 4500 noms are given out, and between us we have 2-3, that means that the people with nominations are no longer 4500 but 2250ish. (assuming the theory that everyone has at least 2 nominations.) that means that if 1400 are give appointments, our chances of getting in are better than 50-50!. But don't pay attention to this cause i just made the numbers up to make my self feel better. haha
Also, the local paper has a football recruit "verbally committing to USNA" today...its safe to say that person is NOT in the regular MOC nomination process?
LY this time we saw people saying they were triple q'd, and our DS asked the ALO how he would know if he was. The quick answer is if you have anything including nom and says cand., you are triple q'd. You are not a candidate just because you have a nom. Even in the AFA website it says that if you don't have certain ACT or SAT levels you will normally not be deemed competitive for an appt. From what I understand the USNA does not state that anywhere, thus the letters for academics. So if you have the low SAT (I think the cut off is 590 for Verbal or a 24 E) than check with the AFA regional admission director to see. However, if you know that you already went up to a board, you are triple q'd. You only go up to a board when the packet is complete including the nom.
