I’m currently a college freshman who was highly considering the Naval Academy during my junior and senior years in high school. I am a Div. 1 athlete on the women’s track and XC team at my college. I never completed my application to the Naval Academy because I accepted a scholarship elsewhere; however, I am seriously regretting my decision to not challenge myself and attend USNA - I want to reapply for the class of 2013. So far, at a very challenging college I have a 3.51 (Physic, Calculus, a writing-intensive freshmen seminar and a motor learning class). I have a few questions about the reapplication process: 1) Is it absolutely necessary to retake the SAT/ACTs? I had a 720M/600V in high school, would they still accept that? 2) The admissions website says I need letters of recommendation from my math and English teachers; however, college isn’t quite as personal as high school – while I’m sure these letters of recommendation couldn’t hurt me in anyway, they won’t help me like my high school recs did. Would they reaccept high school letters of recommendation if they were re-written? Would the admissions committee look down on college recommendations that aren’t as persona? 3) Would skipping a year of interest/application to USNA look bad? 4) I had already gotten a congressional nomination, and I understand I have to reapply for another one. Is there less of a chance of getting one out of college than in high school, or less of a chance getting one from the same congressman? 5) Is my college GPA sufficient enough? I got a lot of help from this site the first time around, so hopefully you all can help me out again!
