I would think so. With it being competive there could be others on the list that have an LOA too. You never know what your competition has, however you are in a good position with the LOA. Perhaps someone else on the forum can give you more insight. We (my son and I) are new to this too. My son will/should be in the Class of 2013. He has an LOA and applied to all sources avilable to him.... 2 senators, 1 congressman, VP and JROTC. He received the JROTC nomiation first, but is also on our congressman's list and one of our senator's list. He probally will not get either of these because he has the JROTC nomination - but he only needs one. Also he has been called in for an interview with the other senator. He will be canceling this because he does not need to take this away from another person who does not have an appointment - this is only the right thing to do. Good luck. Go after any and all until you have the one that it take!
