anyone else having problems registering for orientation? I've filled out the form online but when I hit submit it brings up the "This Page cannot be found" screen
yes you do. Any candidate who qualifies through admissions will have the nomination shown on their candidate page. Receiving a Presidential nomination is not a competition. The nominations are given before the candidates application and information is complete.Just because you QUALIFY for a presidential nomination, doesn't mean you will RECEIVE ONE.
Any candidate who meets the Criteria of the above is entitled to be considered for an appointment under this category. Likewise with ROTC and other service connected nominations. The appointments are limited by numbers and competitive........... there may be appointed each year at the Academy cadets as follows: (1) one hundred selected by the President from the children of members of an armed force who— (A) are on active duty (other than for training) and who have served continuously on active duty for at least eight years;
(B) are, or who died while they were, retired with pay or granted retired or retainer pay;
(C) are serving as members of reserve components and are credited with at least eight years of service computed under section 12733 of this title; or
(D) would be, or who died while they would have been, entitled to retired pay under chapter 1223 of this title except for not having attained 60 years of age;
