    I am still quite confused about how the nom process works.
    I received my senator's nom this week and was informed he uses the "competitive and equal" selection process. I understand the every MOC vacancy winner will initially receive an appointment, so does that mean for all 10 senator's nom only one will be appionted while the rest go on the NWL?

    please help clarify this for me.

    If your senator's slate is "Competitive", then that means s/he submits 10 names, and the academy chooses one. If that is the ONLY nomination you have, then yes, you go into the National Pool. All slotted nominations: Representatives, senator, presidential, vp, rotc, etc... when added all together, come out to around 700 appointments. That's about half. That means the academy still needs to fill the other half of the class. Those with a nomination, but didn't get selected to be slotted against that nominator's vacancy, will go into the national pool, and the academy will choose by how you all rank against each other with your WCS. Best of luck to you. Mike....

    If there are LOAs on the competitive slate and the only condition left to be met of the LOA is a nom, then they will get an appointment too along with the vacancy winner. A slate could have many LOAs.
