    Thank you, cajost, for posting this!

    For those of us on the roller coaster a second time...88 with 6 months or more of college...doesn't seem like very many, does it? No, I don't really know what I expected other than thinking that in previous years there were roughly 20-ish percent of post high school. Seemed to me like pretty good odds for someone applying a second time. But take away NAPS and Foundation and that certainly shrinks the number of college students.

    # offered

    If there are 1192 in the class what would be an estimate of the number offered admissions to arrive at the 1192?

    Class of 2017 was something like 1,408 offers to get 1,200 so one could reasonably guesstimate 2018 offers to be in the same ballpark for 1,192.

    There are about 35% with a year post h.s. However, most of those come from NAPS and Foundation. The number who attended civilian college is typically somewhat less than 100. Don't think that number has changed much in the past decade or so.

    This is somewhat discouraging. As a college reapplicant, and seeing these numbers, I no longer see myself competing for one of the 1200-1400 appointments. I see myself competing for one of the <100 appointments offered to those in my position. I'd be interested to see what percentage of applicants were college applicants without NAPS or Foundation.

    17000 is a huge number

    Over 17000 opened an application. I assume that some never took it farther than that. Some were out after DODMERB. Some were out after CFA, etc. What is an estimate on number that were 3Q'd or I guess a more realistic number of complete applicants?

    Your perception, while discouraging, is pretty accurate. I've not heard of any limit to the number of folks accepted directly from college (or non-NAPS/Foundation) but, as noted, the number is typically less than, but close to, 100.

    Can't tell you the number of college applicants/re-applicants (some folks apply for the first time after a year or more in college). However, what counts is the number that actually finish their package -- many along the way fall in love with their civilian school/lives/ROTC, etc. and either don't finish or don't accept their appointments.

    As with any applicant, you can only make yourself as strong a candidate as possible and hope for the best!

    Keep in mind that while there are only about 100 non-NAPS/Foundation college level appointments each year, the pool of candidates who go completely through the application process and secure a nomination for the 2nd time is also going to be significantly lower than those who are coming straight out of high school.

    The task is not insurmountable. My son did it this past year. Improve your profile and keep in touch with your congressional nominations liaison. If you really want to attend USNA and become an officer in the Navy, your actions need to match your desire.

    Discouraging in what way? Did you thinking attending a college and reapplying will give you a competitive advantage over high school seniors?

    I think reapplying while attending a college gives minimum competitive advantage over high school seniors (I was reapplicant from a college that got accepted into WP). Yes, reapplying possibly shows your committment and dedication to attend a SA. I think there is any points for committment and dedication in candidate evaluation?

    Your high school rank/GPA and SAT/ACT scores don't change. Also getting A's first year college courses doesn't guarntee that you will be successful at a SA academically. SAs can't have a significantly different academic evaluation process between high school applicants and college applicants. If high school grades and SAT/ACT are disregarded for college applicants, SAs will be comparing 4 years work aginst 6 months or less work.

    I'm not quite so sure what was meant by this statement, but my son's high school rank, GPA, and SAT scores all changed between his original USNA high school application and his 2nd application. The rank/GPA in the 2nd go-round included his entire senior year and his final class rank. He also retook and improved his SAT score after he received his original TWE. All of these areas all showed marked improvement in his 2nd application. He did a lot of other things in the year between applications to improve his standing as well.

    It's a mistake to think that one can just reapply and expect a different result, but if your heart and desire is there, then take the steps necessary to prove it to the admissions board.
