    I am currently a Freshman in High School and am very interested in attending a service academy. I am quite aware that admission into these academies is very selective and am doing my best to prepare myself for the application. Because admission is so competitive, I plan on applying to the West Point, Navy, and Air Force to better my chances of acceptance to one of the three. My question is if I want to apply to more than one academy, do i have to get a congressional nomination for each application or just one that can be applied to all of the schools? Thank you for helping me clear up some confusion that I have regarding service academy admission.

    Each of the military academies will require a separate unique nomination.

    They all can come from the same Congressman or Senator, or they may come from a mix of different sources. But you must have the specific nomination for the specific academy, which gives them the legal right to offer you an appointment.

    (...Except for the USCGA, which (as of today) does not require any type of nomination. Their appointment process is a nationwide merit-based competition with no geographic restrictions.)
