    Just wondering if you guys think at this point it would be better to be CPR or Waitlisted? It seems like a lot of waitlists are going on but not denials. How do odds look for CPR on actually getting an appointment, NAPS or Foundation?

    Would rather be CPR. Yield for USNA is 90 percent.

    But, congrats to all waitlisted...at least you're still in the hunt!!! You've set sail from the Island!

    But the ultimate question that none of us can answer is, how many spots are left for the CPR people?

    Correct, or NAPS/Foundation.

    One question, if yield is 90% wouldn't the spots that need to be "refilled" (after an appointment has been denied) be filled with someone off of the wait list?

    Usually they take yield into account. They offer more than what they want because they know some will turn it down.

    Yes, but the number of spots will be small I guess. Would like to still be considered for NAPS.

    Last year they offered 1300 appts for about 1165 spots. So they are pretty sure of their yield. They ended up with 1190 and were actually over their expected class. So basically no one got off the waitlist.

    What 2019 posted has been true for the last few years. They make an estimate for yield, know the target number and offer x amount of appointments. It's been a few years (obviously I am not an official source and only going off memory) since someone was picked off the wait list. But, it's funny how these things work, maybe this is the year that their yield drops and they make some wait list offers. None of us know! All you can do is hope for the best, plan for the worst and keep your options open.
