    Hi, I'm applying for the USNA Class of 21 and I'm wondering how competitive are nominations in New York. I live in NY-13 so if have any information about my specific District that would be helpful too. Thanks

    I would assume it is very competitive. NY is a competitive state for it's Senatorial Noms from the large population.
    Before I enlisted I applied to USNA from alittle more upstate, and it was competitive.

    I got a senatorial nom from schumer but those are extremely competitive and I wouldn't bank on them. Ny-13 is a unique mix of lower and upper class neighborhoods, but I assume that interest in service academies is lesser in the bronx and upper manhattan than it is in long island or upstate. Rangel has 45 years in congress so if you're qualified for a nomination you should be able to get one from him.

    Not sure how you come up with this. Depends on the year Rangel may have one or two slots (five total at one SA), so the most he can nominate is 20 for the year he has two openings. If there are more than 20 qualified applicants not everyone will get a nom.

    For the OP and others: competitiveness can fluctuate from year to year. It is about applying with your best effort, and having alternate plans for ROTC and/or regular colleges.
