I get that there will be less LOAs and I get why. My challenge (and probably alot of people) is that my area not only wont duplicate noms but you cant get a nom to two service academies-even among the three MOCs (I am sure there are always exceptions -but I cant count on that). We are told we have to pick ONE S.A. only when you turn in your Nom applications, they all talk. So one will not give you a nom to USNA and the other a nom to USMA. Ive read on here to put all you eggs in one basket. I get that too. But the challenge is the SA that I am more competitive for is my second choice SA. Just a slight preference right now and really any of the S.As would be great, but the formula USNA uses to get ACT scores yields me a 34, The formula that USMA uses yields me a 32. Unfortunately I dont think ACT scores of 34M, 34E, 31R, 30S, will make the LOA cut for USMA, whereas 34M, 34E may for USNA. (I know its whole package GPA 4.4, all honors AP, team captain, hundreds of volunteer hrs) I have loads of time of course and things may change...I am sure there have been others before me who have been in the same predicament. Any advice?
