    I want to apply to USAFA, USMA and USNA. Does it mean I have to go through the same process for each of them for the medical examinations, requests for the same nominators (Senators, congressman representatives...), physical examinations, etc.?

    Many parts of the process can be used for each SA. The CFA, DoDMERB exam only needs to be done once and can be submitted to each SA. The nom process is unique to each MOC, so research each MOC you can apply to. Usually you put down what SA you are seeking a nom for and it’s the same packet regardless of how many SAs you apply to. Each SA has its own application, but many parts are duplicative and can be leveraged. I recommend you read each SA’s website for the details on applying and ensuring you understand each of their unique items. If you need a math teacher recommendation for several of the SAs you are applying to, then it’s best to let you teacher know that there will be multiple forms to fill out, but they should be able to leverage the letter or maybe some slightly minor changes of the prompts are slightly different. It’s best to get all the info you so can coordinate and know what only needs to be asked once and can be used for multiple SAs.

    The academy applications are obviously separate. The medical examination will be done once. When the others attempt to schedule a medical exam they'll notice it's already been done and use that. I assume the MOCs normally only require 1 application for each MOC, and that in the application you indicate which academy or academies you wish to attend. You can check that by calling the MOCs office, but it seems to me the way any sane person would run their process. Oops! Forgot I was talking about MOCs. Never mind. :D

    Our Representative allowed DS to apply for multiple SA nominations; both Senators requested you to pick your 1st choice.
    DS had 2 interviews on same day for Representative's office but only needed one nomination application.

    I cannot imagine one MOC requiring separate applications [essays / letters etc] for multiple SAs but do anticipate separate board interviews for the different SAs.

    You may need to strategize on which MOC you apply for which SA depending on how competitive your district and state are.

    Each MOC runs their own process, so check their NOM application website to see what is required. Be careful of trying to 'game' your NOM requests (i.e. different 1st choices for each MOC), since this could back-fire if you eventually only get 1 NOM to an SA that wasn't really your first choice. Lots of older threads on that topic.
