    My school is top 10 in the nation for the STEM rank, a pretty prestigious school. And I know that West Point is rolling application, but I just wanted to know if more than one person from each school can attend West Point.

    Does the West Point admission compare applicants from the same school?

    Yes, more than one person can get in from the same school.

    By this are you asking if applicants from the same school compete with one another? If so, yes they do.

    People from the same school will most likely be from the same congressional district, unless it's a private school or something where people that live far away can attend. You will compete for a MOC nomination with the people in your congressional district, you will compete for senatorial nomination with the people in your state, and you will compete with every other applicant in the country for a vice presidential nomination(it is nearly impossible to get a vice presidential nomination). Everyone is eligible for those nomination sources, but you may also be eligible for other nomination sources.

    Multiple candidates can and often do gain admission even if they come from the same HS. Usually they are competitive nationally and/or athletes.

    One of my Plebe Year squad mates went to Thomas Jefferson High School in Fairfax, VA. They had 5 or 6 attend USNA from his graduating class.
