    My DD just got a D on Calculus, she is a senoir and the rest of her grades were A and B including 2 AP.
    Last week she received an e-mail from the USNA stating that they have put her file on a defered status until they received her 7th semester transcripts.
    Will the D affect her chances on getting a nom to the USNA?

    It probably won't affect her getting a nom (unless you sent her semester transcripts to your congressperson) but it could definitely affect her chances at getting an appointment.

    Sorry I meant she already have a nom, she needs an appoinment.

    Will there be a chance she can get a NAPS appoinment?

    To be honest I'm not sure, the D may look bad but she certainly still has a chance. Unless she is a minority or recruit NAPS is probably out of the picture.

    NAPS is used for those who are lacking the scholastic Q since it is thought another year of academic work will better prepare them for USNA. If she is 3Q then NAPS isn't an option. Some minorities and recruited athletes also go to NAPS but that has always been the subject of endless debate on this forum. Those in the running for an appointment must be 3Q AND have a NOM. Everyone in that category will NOT get an appointment.
