    I submitted my preliminary application a few days ago and got an email saying

    "Thank you for submitting a Preliminary Application to the U.S. Naval Academy. It will be reviewed, and if you qualify, you will receive a candidate packet in the mail with a candidate number and instructions on how to apply online. Good luck, and Beat Army!

    Admissions Office
    United States Naval Academy"

    About how long will it take to find out if I qualify and what not? Will I be notified by e-mail before receiving the hard copy packet?

    As long as your GPA, Rank, and SAT weren't completely terrible you'll become a candidate. Nothing to stress about at all. If you don't get the packet within two weeks, give admissions a call.

    Alright, thanks. Unfortunately, my rank is low do to my school only having weighted ranks (my unweighted according my guidance counselor is a lot higher)

    But my creds are:
    25 ACT (27 Math, 27 Reading)
    1140/1710 SAT: 620 Math, 520 Reading, 570 Writing (Could be better)
    GA- 3.21 (will be updated in a few weeks)
    Rank 295/512 (will be updated in a few weeks)

    Does that seem like candidate worthy? Even if it isn't acceptance worthy, do you think I can still get the packet?

    Alright, thanks. Hopefully a week or so from now, I will receive a nice packet from USNA, then a few months later, receive a nice big acceptance packet!
