I originally applied to the naval academy during high school like most kids do. I completed the preliminary application and became an official candidate, but never went further than that because I got accepted into school elsewhere and stopped applying for USNA. Fast forward until now, I'm 21 years old and a junior in college. I've been back and forth between full time and part time credits, so I have at least another few years of school left. For some reason I got the urge to re-apply to the naval academy. As I understand, you must be no older than 23 years old for the year you would start - and it is too late to apply for Fall of 2008. This means that I can still apply for Fall of 2009, when I'll be 22 years old. I'm just wondering if this would be really uncommon for such an old first-year student at USNA. After all, I would be starting as a first-year in the same year that all my current friends will already have an undergraduate degree. Anybody know of 22 year old plebes? PS I have a 29 ACT and 1290 SAT but they were taken a few years ago. Will I need to re-take them? Also will I need to supply college transcripts or no (my previous college credits would do me no good I'm assuming...)? I also had a 3.8 cumulative GPA in high school..any idea how hard it would be for me to get accepted?
