    So, how will this play out? Does the VP send his printout of nominations to each academy you indicated? Are you notified by the academy or the VP that you received his nomination--just asking?

    Vice Presidential Nominations are awarded by the Admissions office at the respective academies. The office of the VP send each academy a list of those who applied.

    Only one can be admitted per year, per academy. If the nomination is awarded and the candidate chooses not to attend - the academy can nominate another candidate.

    I only recall one candidate on this forum who received it over the past 4 years. Roughly, she applied to three academies, got three LOA's and One nomination to one academy. Her MOC would not consider her for other nominations and she received notification of her VP nomination from the academy and it was closely followed by an appointment.

    I may be wrong, but the VP is allowed to have 5 charges too each SA. That means at certain times 2 in a yr group can be charged to the VP.

    I do agree out of the yrs on this site I only know 1 cadet, the irony is the one I know was a male for an SA that he elected to not accept the appointment. So between JAM and I we know actually know of 2 that got the VP appointment.

    VP is not something I would suggest to place any hope on because it is the broadest in giving a nom, but the smallest chance of being charged.
