    I live in Milpitas CA, pretty small city. The thing is, no one at my school (that I know of) wants to even attend an academy. So my question is... the competitiveness based on State, or does being in a city/highschool (only one in our city) play a role too?

    Cities/towns/states with larger military presence are generally more competitive. For example, the Northern Virginia area is very competitive because so many retired military work at the Pentagon and in other industries in the area. Also, because of its proximity to USNA, it is competitive. Any congressional area near a post/base will likely be more competitve than one that isn't. It really doesn't matter about your school, it's your congressional district.

    In Milpitis you'll be competing with all other high school/college students from the state of California for nomination from the two Senators, but only competing with others from your Congressional District--so all the public and private high schools in your area, as well as local college students (who are still able to apply to the Academy).
