Kind of a disappointment, but I hope I still have a chance

    Hello,

    I'm an applicant to the Naval Academy this year. I just learned that I didn't receive my representative's nomination to USNA. I haven't heard back yet from my state's senators (NJ), but I don't feel that my interviews went outstandingly with them, and I recognize that many more people from all across the state are competing for those noms. Of course, the VP's nomination is a long shot at best.

    My question is--assuming an applicant is extremely well qualified--is it possible for the Academy to use a Superintendent's Nomination to admit someone from an unusually competitive district (NJ-05) who is NOT a recruited athlete or in possession of an LoA?

    Possible and highly, highly unlikely, imo. It's not over but plans B, C, etc. may be more viable. Remember, nothing personal. Stronger candidates will be denied and lesser candidates will be appointed.

    Agree with WP on all counts.

    Proceed full steam ahead with alternative plans and if, by chance, you end up with an appointment, so much the better.
