    My top choice for academies is USMA and second is USAFA. Now I am writing one of my essays for a nomination and it seems awkward to keep saying that I want to go to "one of the service academies, this is what I like about the service academies, and if I went to a service academy", etc. It seems to general and like I don't have a goal when I refer to them as a group but if I write West Point in all the blanks would they think that I am not interested in Air Force? WP is more competitive in my area so if I did not get that slot would they be reluctant to give me an AF slot if my essay only mentions WP?
