GoArmy, hooah and congrats!
BTW, didn't you already have a Presidential Nomination? Why do you think WP waited until you got your MOC nomination to send you your appointment? (Not that it matters, but just curious.)
Thank you! I did have both a Presidential and Son of Disabled Vet nom, I was also curious but there's no way for me to get an official answer, so everything I've got is speculation.
I know based off an email conversation I had with Major Bulls about a week before my appointment that I was in the top three for the district. I knew another kid from VA-10 with a LOA so I assumed I was #2 or #3. Since the Presidential nom pool is very large, I imagine they didn't appoint me through that because they wanted to get more completed files and see where I stacked up in the group. When I got the Congressional nom, being so highly ranked in the district may have opened up the spot for me. The other option is that the first "wave" went out around the time I got my appointment, so maybe enough files had been completed by then that I was given the spot with my other two nominations.
Like I said, that's all just speculation. I swear, thinking about the numbers behind the admissions process can drive you crazy!
