    How competitive is Georgia? Is there anywhere I can find information on the competitiveness of each district or what state cadets come from?

    70+ in the class of 2019 were from GA if I recall correctly. A few of those were NAPS but still GA. Some districts in the Atlanta area can be very competitive. We certainly did well vs the other States last year. The Senator's coordinators (Nancy and Sarah) do a good job positioning as many GA candidates as possible for selection.

    Thanks, do you know any specifics on the southern districts?

    This was really useful, by the way.

    Not specifically. I would bet the number of applicants around the military bases is higher due to the exposure/awareness. Higher number of applicants = more competition.

    You can call your congressman's liaison and ask how many from their district were appointed. It's not classified info.

    The answers available for the original question were posted in the prior thread.

    They can appoint up to 65 active and 65 reserve per year if I recall correctly. From what I have seen, they don't appear to fill those numbers. I suspect if you are 3Q and meet the requirements to get one of those NOMS you have a good shot. There is a liaison officer for enlisted. I recommend you contact them to discuss. Process varies slightly for one of those NOMS. You are still eligible to compete for the traditional NOMS.

    The one Q is actually 'scholastic' (not academic) since it includes much more than just your GPA and ACT/SAT scores, things like ECA's, sports, teacher recommendations, your essay......etc.
