I have what I hope is not a naive question. Our Congressman hasn't announced his slate yet but uses the competitive method. DS is applying to USNA (only) and knows someone in the same congressional district with a LOA (recruited athlete). If it turns out that the Congressman only has one opening at USNA for 2016, would the LOA-holder fill that slot (I don't believe has any other noms at this point) and the other 9 named on the slate still move on to be considered for an appointment, even tho the Congressman's one USNA slot is taken? Or am I missing something and our DS's chances of appointment are reduced (DS does know that he is 3Q'd)? The Congressman was our DS's best shot at a nom (he applied to VP; has been turned down by one senator). And just curious -- if there were two people with LOAs and only one slot, what happens then? Thank you.
