    The acceptance rate at USNA is 6.8 (ish). Is that acceptance rate based upon: a) # of nominations or b) # of those seeking a nomiation?

    It's based on total number of people opening an application (denominator) and appointments (numerator). Many who open an application never complete it. Thus, the numbers get increasingly "better" (for candidates) when the denominator is those who complete applications, those who are fully qualified, and those fully qualified with a nomination.

    I got my "ish" wrong.

    Thanks for the explanations (85 and Dad).
