    Hello,

    I have a friend who recieved a 3.5 and 3.7 GPA as a mathematics major for the previous spring and fall semester. He is 21 and has a lot of great extra curriculars (Eagle Scout, NASS, Dale Carnegie, etc.)

    My question is, would my friend be competitive for USNA if he were to apply? Would it look great on his application if he applied from a prestigious school like MIT?

    Yes he would competitive. You need to refer to the USNA admissions page about age restrictions. Your friend might want to explore the OCS path. With them being 21 they are probably have 1-3 years of college under their belt, they would have to start over at USNA.

    With grades like that from a place like MIT he'd probably be competitive for NUPOC or BDCP.

    Active duty E-5 pay and benefits, time in service, and OCS afterwards.

    BDCP is currently at E3 if they are candidate ( still in college) whereas graduates are E5 in the Navy Reserve and will incur all rights and responsibilities. NUPOC is at E6 until you commission as an Ensign. https://www.navycs.com/officer/ for more info.
