    I Have heard that places like Texas, California and some east coast states are very difficult because of the ammount of applicants. I know that it is not "easy" to be appointed no matter where you live. I was just curious if living in Oregon is an advantage or disadvantage. Thank you!

    I looked at the USNA Parents' Club of Oregon and SW Washington website and they have 10-13 midshipmen per class listed. That may just be the mids of active members.

    Check with your US Representative's Academy coordinator. Ours was pleased to tell us how many mids/cadets from his district were currently at the Academies. That will include mids/cadets NOT charged to him.

    Best Wishes!

    Finding contacts from the Oregon parent's association or alumni association would probably be the best thing. Pull a google search and see what you pull up, and if all else fails ask your regional BGO.

    Jbow, probably not in the best interest of your daughter to put her name and company.

    Every state is "competitive" in many ways. Some states have more applicants than others ... the more who apply, the more the nominating commiittes of the congressional staff have to consider for nominations. Candidates, generally, are evaluated on their own merits. IF this is something you really want to do, go for it ... if you think it is to hard for you, then you just may be correct.
