    My son received two congressional nominations: a Principal to the USAFA and a Competitive to the USNA. He has received an appointment to the USAFA which he is thrilled about, and is awaiting to hear from USNA...his first choice. Will his appointment to the AFA prevent him from getting an appointment to the USNA with his competitive nomination? He also has a Presidential nomination to both as well.

    Offer of appointment to AFA or USNA is independent to each academy. Also, USNA is first and foremost evaluating him for his own merits regardless of his presidential nom, which "may" potentially give him a slight "bump". It does offer an option for the academies to decide where to charge his nomination to. Best of luck to the fine young man you raised.

    Thank you for this information. I am quite new to this forum so I may be asking the wrong question. I guess what I'm wanting to know is whether, or not, his appointment to the USAFA will prevent the USNA from considering him for an appointment?

    It won't. Do not worry.
