    I know there is a 7% acceptance rate at the naval academy, but what is it after you are 3q plus having a nomination? Thanks!

    I think 7% is not really accurate, acceptance rate is prob little higher. I may be wrong, but I read USNA includes all applicants who starts their application, including NASS applicants? I think you have about 50% chance if 3q'd with nom?

    "If you are found scholastically qualified but do not receive a Letter of Assurance, you will be competing for an Offer of Appointment from within your nominating sources. Approximately 3,000 candidates are found fully qualified (scholastic, medical, CFA, and have obtained a nomination) each year. Of that number, about 1,400 will receive appointments and approximately 1,200 become midshipmen." From the USNA Admissions website

    It has been about 40% within the last few years.
    More recently, over 3,000 are fully qualified with about 1,400 offers.

    ^^ To build on what usnabgo08 wrote: keep in mind that that is the total national yield. It varies from year to year, although in recent years, the number of 3Q+nom has risen while the offers of appointment have remained flat. But don't let that discourage you. Remember that YOU are the one in control of your physical, medical and academic qualifications. As far as nominations, a lot can depend on where you live and what sources you're eligible for. For example, New Jersey and Virginia are highly competitive, whereas some districts in Western states (WY, MT, SD, ND) may have just a handful or fewer qualified nomination applicants.

    Thanks for the replies. I'm taking my cfa Monday and will then wait for guidance teacher to turn her stuff in. I'll apply for the presidential July 1, and will apply for every other nom source too. I live in Maryland, the 2nd district. So navy will be harder for me. But am also applying to Air Force where my father went so hoping some legacy and luck will come my way.
