I will not be receiving any nominations this year, so unless I get offered the prep school, I will be re-applying for USNA next year. I have also applied for a NROTC scholarship. If I accept the NROTC scholarship, how does getting a ROTC based nomination work? I have heard that USNA can only accept 20 applicants based on NROTC nominations. Does this mean only 20 nominations are given out, or does everyone that applies for one gets one and then USNA only accepts 20?
