    DS says the VP nom does NOT require a separate application like the MOCs. Could someone with the knowledge confirm this. Thanks.

    That is not true. The VP Nom does have its own app and must be completed separately.

    Correct. The VP Nomination is done online, quick and easy as was stated above. The VP staff simply forwards a list of all candidates who applied for the VP nom to each academy. The VP nomination has the same restrictions as any other MOC. There are only 5 total slots for the VP at each academy. It is used as a last-resort backup for a nomination if an academy really wants a candidate who otherwise has no other nomination. It would be foolish not to apply, and then be that one person who needed it.

    The vice presidential official website says all letters of recommendation High School transcript and ACT or SAT scores should be forwarded directly to the respective academies

    Follow the instructions on the SA website for submitting your application for your VP nomination. Each SA administers the nomination process for the VP.

    For Navy, the number available and the max to be given out, are on USNA.edu.
    https://www.usna.edu/Admissions/Steps-for-Admission/Nomination-Sources/The-President-of-the-US.php
    My standard recommendation is to read every page, every drop down, every link, every sidebar, on USNA.edu

    I would predict same info is available on other SA websites.

    You'll see that the Presidential, since it's a matter of simple family eligibility, is available to all who qualify. The limiting factor is that USNA will only use 100 of those as a basis for an appointment. That's why it's always recommended to apply for all noms for which a candidate is eligible.
