    as usual, I understand that it's really hard to tell. However, does anyone know the general stats for applicants in KS-03?

    The best source of information is your local Field Rep or Regional Commander. You can look at historically how many applicants are in your district but each year could also be different.

    You know...I've been on these forums a long time and I see this question every year..."How competitive..."

    I guess my "snarky" response is: who cares?

    If this is something you truly want, then why care how competitive it is? Do your absolute best at everything you can to make your package the most appealing.

    In the end, it's not the competitiveness of the area, it's the competitiveness of the candidates.

    What @flieger83 said. Competition is going to change, year to year. It'll be a function of how many individuals seek admission to each individual SA. It'll be a matter of those individuals' stats.

    You have exactly ZERO control over any of that. You can only, must only make yourself the best candidate in any year. This is not a system that can be gamed or rigged. You compete with yourself.

    That's really true. You're right. I'll apply to the best of my ability of course. Thank you!
