I'd appreciate it if someone could help me understand where all the nominations for a service academy are "allocated'. As I understand the system, each member of congress (435 Reps & 100 Senators & the VP) may have a maximum of 5 noms attending each SA at any time. If we take the USNA (as an example) that means that the maximum number of noms from the above source would be 2680 Mids. The enrollment at the USNA is approximately 4300. Where do the other 1620 Noms come from? Could there be anywhere near that many Presidential Noms at one academy? How many can the Superintendent choose? Thanks.
