    I've been reading threads about applicants going to multiple interviews for different members of congress for a nomination. Is it possible to apply for a service academy nomination from multiple MOCs?

    It’s usually the 2 senators and 1 representative for the district of residence, for USNA, USMA, USAFA, the DOD SAs. For USMMA, it can be any representative in the state. USCGA does not require a nomination.

    Your best and most accurate source of information will be primary sources. If you have not read every page, dropdown and link on your SA of interest website, I recommend it. Most answers are there.

    As stated by Capt MJ, except for USMMA, you can only apply for nominations from your state/voting district.
    ~ If you live in VA, and Fairfax county, you can't apply for a nom for USAFA/USNA/USMA from Prince William County if it is a different congressional district. Your noms would come from VA Sens and your congressional district.

    I would also add that not every MoC does an interview. For my DS, only 1 of the 3 MoCs did an interview, the other 2 decided based on the paper submitted, i.e. application.
    ~ DS did receive all 3 MoC nominations.

    I will pile onto Pima’s comment, and note you should read up on the different methods of ranking/not ranking. And, finally, in some states, the elected officials coordinate so that 1 candidate cannot collect noms from all, in an effort to spread the wealth.

    If there are info nights held by these folks, go. Scour their websites too.

    For others who are reading this thread, if you haven’t read the Stickies at the top of the Nominations forum here on SAF, I recommend it.
