    I know it's pretty early in the competition, but right now, I am very worried.
    You see, I received an LOA from USNA November 1st, and i did slightly worse than my normal transcript average, which is an 88.4. I can bring it up by the end of the 1st term, sure, but I'm worried about my math grades. I am currently taking calculus, but I've been failing my past few tests. At what point do they decide to take it back? What kind of grades are they expecting?

    (My average in mathematics has never been stellar, (79.9 overall average right now) and now is like the worst possible time to be struggling.)

    I had this same exact worry except in my case, it was AP Chem. I talked to a few midshipmen and all of them said unless you were failing, they highly doubted that USNA would rescind the LOA.

    The best person to ask is your BGO. If they don't know, shoot your regional admissions officer an email.

    My guess is USNA does not rescind LOAs ...conversely, they may not offer appointment even with an LOA if situation warrants ... and/or may rescind an appointment in the event of circumstances warranting such. All are contingent upon acceptable continued performance.

    You're in no danger, imo.

    An LOA/appointment won't be rescinded for academics unless USNA has reason to believe you completely bagged your final semester -- getting all Ds and Fs, not attending class at all, etc.-- with no legitimate explanation. A slight slippage in grades won't hurt you.
