NOT URM NOT Recruited Athlete NOT from an under represented area Now I know some ole' timers are going to come on here and protest posting of LOA stats and tell people not to follow them. It is my opinion that the stats on the official website regarding admissions averages are very misleading to many people, even though they are accurate. However, they are only accurate when taken in the entirety. You need to know your area specifically. !!! Unless you can speak 8 dialects of Chinese, run a 4:10 mile, or come from an under represented area the averages are not necessarily for you. In other words if you are just starting out on this process don't shoot for the scores on the USNA admissions page. Shoot for the LOA scores (even though an appointment is the ultimate goal, not an LOA) When I did a historic search of stats from our area, we new that DS had to treat each point in the admission process like a golden nugget. Given the LOA and Admission stats posted by others on this forum from our area, our son had to live by the words of General Hal Moore, “There is always one more thing you can do to increase your odds of success.” Good Luck 2017!
