    JROTC Nom

    My JROTC instructor offered to give me a nomination, but I can't seem to find a portal to send to him to fill out. He has done it in the past for USAFA and he said that he received an online portal that he had to fill out, but I haven't found any such port for USNA. Any help is great, thank you.

    Academy Enrollment Math

    So, as I understand it, each member of the House and Senate, and the Vice President each can have five cadets at USAFA at one time. That's 2680 cadets. The Presidential, Honor JROTC, Enlisted/Reservist vacancies, and Children of Disabled/Deceased Vets add another 350-375 cadets to the total. So...

    Are Nomination Apps Rolling?

    So I know that many of the nomination apps open at different times, mine range from September 27 to November 8th, but is sooner better?
