    I've seen a few threads for NC and MD, but I didn't feel like hijacking anybody's thread...

    So, does anyone know how competative the state of Nevada is for receiving appointments? I received my nom in January... and have only just been deemed medically qualified by DoDMERB. But it's killing me and giving me hope at the same time not to see any appointments from NV for the class of 2015...

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated :thumb:

    I've been offered an appointment to the Class of 2015. I'm in southern Nevada and I've heard that about 4-5 total candidates have accepted as well.

    I would say that Nevada is of average difficulty in terms of getting an appointment. It's definitely more competitive for USAFA due to Nellis AFB in the south, but I managed to get all three appointments for USNA even when I thought that I had done poorly in one interview.

    Long story short: if you are all-around competitive, you'll get an appointment.

    I forgot to mention that this was my second year applying to USNA. I was wait-listed last year and was never offered an appointment. Took a full course-load the next year at CSN in Las Vegas and was offered an appointment to USNA.

    Also Forgot to clarify that those 4-5 candidates were southern Nevada only. I'm not aware of northern Nevada offers.
