Submitting MOBI file to Kindle Scout

I intend to submit a book to Kindle Scout, but I'm concerned my manuscript is in Georgia font instead of TNR. Also, I have converted my file into MOBI. Does Kindle Scout only take files in Word Doc, using TNR, 12 point font for text and 14 point font for Chapters? My past experience submitting to Kindle without converting to MOBI has been poor, but I'd like to follow the rules to get a chance at being selected.

Whatever their rules, follow them. If they want Word and TNR, do it. They can and will reject out of hand any submissions that don't meet their guidelines.

Also note that it's not worth trying to put your ebook into Georgia. It will come out in KDP's default font, which readers can then change if they want.

Okay. I can easily switch to TNR. The real question is submitting in Word rather than a MOBI set up. What's your thoughts on that?
