    Do recruited athletes have to secure a nomination?

    Yes, Every applicant has to go through the exact same process. Opinions and details (true and perceived) of favoritism are available, and atheletes will get their fair share of those opinions. ALL SERVICE ACADEMIES have a process. All applicants are required to take the same steps.
    Do your best. Show attention to detail. Complete the steps required. Most applicants never finish the application and are never really considered. Good Luck.

    Crimsondude: the way it was explained to me was that if they really want you, they will find a nom for you. The sup has limited noms to give out for athletes, etc. My son was in a non-revenue generating sport, and was told to try his best to get a nom. If he couldn't, they'd see what they could do. He had to send in proof he had tried. He received two, so it was a moot point. I have a friend whose son was a recruited basketball player. He did not even apply for a nom; it was found for him. If you want to go to a service academy, you should try to get your own nom.

    That is, unless you want to go to a service academy that does not use them. :wink:
