    Hi all,

    I applied for the class of 2019 but am new to the forums. I was going to reapply for 2020 but freshman year and my grades weren't that great at all. I'm going to reapply for 2021 but I'd like to see where I am compared to other college applicants that have either gotten in or applied before. I realize that USNA looks at everyone differently, I'm just interested to know.

    Would anyone mind posting their stats, activities, etc. they had/have as college applicants and their results?

    Thanks!

    I am a second year applicant and a rising sophomore in college. I did not apply from HS. I had a 3.4 gpa from Wake Forest University with plebe courses. I applied for noms in NC with a 590 math and 740 CR and still managed a rep nom. I retook the SAT this May and got a 700 math. I was a Sea Cadet Chief in HS and was on the boxing club at Wake. I am not in NROTC because Wake doesn't have one.

    Hope that puts things in perspective. Don't give up the ship.

    Why are you interested in knowing? You answered your own question...everyone is looked at differently. You need to have the self confidence to apply and see where everything lands (if USNA is what you are seeking). Getting other's stats is practically useless. I'm sure there are candidates who have outstanding, tip-top credentials and others that are not as good (I had such a candidate that ended up being AB qualified who, in my opinion wasn't the most academically qualified, but had other noteworthy aspects). Don't worry how you "match" up among other applicants; what is true...if you don't apply you have 0 chance.

    If you have specific questions on how to improve your application...then ask! There are many posts on college re-applicants -- in regards what to do during succeeding admission cycles -- but many BGOs and alumni are more than happy to answer specific questions you have.
