    In trying to answer the question of how big the wait list usually is, I went searching for the Common Data Set which is where you find that info for colleges. I was unable to find a CDS for USNA . I thought all colleges were required to report a CDS.

    I have seen posts about previous years having anywhere from zero to 31 admittees (but usually very few), however, I have yet to see anybody give an idea of how many make the list.

    UVA last year put 5500 kids on the wait list and only 42 got in. Are the USNA's numbers as abysmal?

    Let's say an average of 10 get in. Is it 10 off of a 100 person list, or a 1000 person list?

    I believe usna 1985 touched on this the other day so will let them address. If I remember correctly from what they posted; the wait list in the last few years has admitted between 0 and up to 40ish. So yes, the numbers are very low. I tend to think the wait list is very small at USNA. My guess is 100ish. But that is just being around the boards and USNA for awhile, don't hear a ton of wait listers.

    Yes. His post was what I was referring to when I mentioned the low numbers that come off the list. I was curious in anyone (I was thinking him) knew the size of the list.
