I am a Naval Academy Candidate for the class of 2014 who lives in Texas. Just today, one of my best friends who attends the same school I do says he is now considering applying to USNA also. I would consider myself a competitive candidate (2290 SAT, AP classes, ranked 7/800, Eagle Scout) and my friend has grades and activities extremely similar to my own. If we both get nominations (our congressmen give 10 without a primary), would the fact that we live in the same area (and go to the same school) make it unlikely that we would both receive appointments? Does the admissions board take into account geographical representation when giving appointments?
