    In "Absolutely American" the author said that for children of deceased or 100% disabled veterans, "your file skips all the way to the superintendent's desk". Is that true or just hyperbole?

    Not true. Per USC Title 10, your file must be deemed qualified with a nomination to be accepted. To be qualified, your file has to be complete and go through the admissions committee for qualification.

    The only advantage it brings is that there are few applicants with the Deceased or 100% Disabled Veteran nomination thus the competition pool is smaller. Of course, the candidate had to have a parent who sacrificed all or almost all to his/her country, so it is a worthwhile nomination category.
