FYI- I have been accepted into the Foundation program for NMMI over the 2012-2013 school year. Just curious From their FAQ https://www.usna.com/Page.aspx?pid=484 "Your record was reviewed by the Naval Academy Admissions Board and recommended to the Foundation as worthy of consideration for sponsorship. The Board, of course, does not know how successfully you may compete on your nomination slate (which will determine your ultimate potential for an appointment this year), but it certainly considered you as someone whom they would like to see come to USNA if qualified. Over 200 names are typically forwarded by the Admissions Board to the Foundation each year. We anticipate being authorized to sponsor only 50-60 candidates for USNA in the coming year." I have since received a nomination from my congresswoman, but with the Foundation offer initiated by the board is my chance of 2016 gone? I wouldn't mind the extra year to prepare myself for the academics. I'm wondering if anyone has received a Foundation scholarship offer and then a real offer of appointment in the same year. Any help would be appreciated.
