    Is it possible for a college freshman (second-time applicant) to receive a CVW invite? Or is it only for high school seniors? I am not an LOA recipient but I attended NASS 2011. Honestly I think CVW would be of greater value to me now, having a different perspective than I did a year ago. I called my BGO about this, but he dismissed the idea. Has anyone attended as a reapplicant?

    I assume you didn't have a CVW before . . . If so, I think they would be very unlikely to give you a second one.

    If not, it can't hurt to ask for one. All USNA can do is say "no" and you're no worse off than you are now.

    Call down to admissions and request a visit. I have done this with my kids and they have never been turned down. I think it shows a desire to attend the Academy.
    Good luck!

    I was a college applicant last year (a freshman at a state school) and was invited to a CVW in the spring. I hadn't received a previous CVW though, and if you have, that may make a difference.

    If you're a college sophomore applying to USNA as a re-applicant (I got wait listed last year), is it possible to get a LOA?

    I'm not willing to say anything is impossible. However, USNA won't review a college candidate's packet until first semester grades are in, which is typically in mid-to-late January (and the review may be a bit later). MOC noms are due Jan. 31. So, from a practical standpoint, there's little reason to provide an LOA b/c USNA will already know (or will know within days) whether you have an nom and thus can simply offer you an appointment.
