    What address do we write on the envelope for the VP nom? I looked on the application but could not find anything.

    Very Respectfully,

    The VP nomination goes straight to the VP office at:
    The Vice President
    Eisenhower Executive Office Building
    Attn: Military Academy Nominations
    Washington DC 20501

    That is the address right off the VP's site for nom's. It worked for me. After you send it in it will take a couple weeks to get a response. I think it took about 4 weeks before I got a letter back from the VP saying I had been "entered in the competition." Good Luck on the rest of your app.

    Regarding the VP Nomination:

    The Vice President is the only authorized nominating authority who can nominate U.S. citizens without geographical restrictions. He may have a maximum number of five nominees in attendance at each authorized academy at any one time. Normally, he has one or two vacancies each year.

    Due to a large volume of applicants (usually several thousand per academy), the Vice President has authorized the academies to evaluate all applications and rank them according to qualifications. In screening candidates, the academies evaluate an individual's high school or college academic record, results of the ACT and SAT tests, recommendations from individuals who are in a position to judge the applicant's character and academic potential, and physical and medical qualifications. In view of this screening by the academies, it is important that all correspondence subsequent to actual application (e.g., letters of recommendation, high school and college transcripts and ACT/SAT examination results) be forwarded directly to the academy when requested. Do not send this information directly to the Vice President.

    Notification of those selected for a nomination is normally made during February or March of the year in which the class convenes.
