    I just got a conditional LOA from NAPS. Does this mean I'm not getting into the naval academy or does usually everyone receive a LOA from NAPS and USNA? Also do I still need a congressional nomination for NAPS? And finally, when I graduate from NAPS, do I still need a nomination to get into the naval academy after the 10 month course?

    Hey there!

    Do you just need medical qualification? I, too, got one of these and as soon as I got medically qualified recieved the official acceptance packet.

    I believe it means most likely we will not be heading to USNA for class of 2013. And no not everyone recieves an offer to NAPS; some people recieve LOA's or appointments to USNA, some recieve appointments to NAPS, some recieve a Foundation Scholarship, and some are flat-out rejected (the much dreaded 'thin-envelope').

    No, you definitely do not need a nomination to attend NAPS. All you have to do is complete the conditional requirements and you're good to go.

    Yes, we will need another nomination to attend USNA in 2010. I believe all NAPSters apply to their MOC's; some do get nominations from them. NAPSters also qualify for the Secretary of the Navy nomination for active duty military.

    Great job; be proud! I hope your planning on accepting the offer!

    Is there a chance I can still get accepted to USNA though? I still have information to send that might just might clinch me over and get accepted. For example I'm class president, but they don't know that yet because I haven't told them I won my school election yet. Or I think I'm getting a varsity letter for track and field

    Anything's possible. I would contact your admissions officer and let them know about any updates to your application.

    When I was offered NAPS my admissions officer called and told me if I get good grades first semester (specifically: B's in AP Calc and Physics) they'd bring me in this year.

    I, however, am probably just going to go to NAPS anyway. I'd only be 17 for I-day this year and I think a year to prepare would do me well. I want to really kick butt at USNA.

    Don't forget that the Admissions Board knows what they are doing, and if they think a year at NAPS would benefit you to succeed- and possibly help you excel- at USNA, then I might listen to them. It's free, you'll be locked and cocked when it comes to I-day and Plebe summer the next summer- and what's a year, when you're going to spend a career in the Navy or Marine Corps anyway?

    Do you have a goal for service selection when you graduate?

    hyb128, when you got your loa for naps, did your admissions status on the dodmerb website change as well?
