Grabbed this from the Capital News in Annapolis Applications to the academy are at an all-time high, officials said. The academy has received 17,416 applications, or 2,100 more than last year, for about 1,100 spots, Dean of Admissions Bruce Latta told the board. Even Summer Seminar, a weeklong exposure program for high school students, is receiving a lot of attention. Academy officials said that 2,500 students applied in the first 24 hours of the program's admissions period, and the application deadline isn't for another three weeks. Last year saw 6,500 students apply for 2,250 Summer Seminar openings. There is nothing really new in these numbers but these are from Academy as the offical source and printed in a Capital news article.
