Hi, I'm a college freshman and this is my second time applying to USNA. I had sort of had a poor first semester as far as grades go (2.35 gpa, Mechanical Engineering major), but I'm also on the varsity swim team (Division 3) that lasts from September 15th - February 14th. I go to a private college in the NE. I got a: C- for Chemistry for Engineers w/ lab B+ for Civiliation (mandatory humanities class) B- in Calc 1 A- in Fitness and Wellness (mandatory gym class) C- in General Physics for Engineers w/ lab. 16 credits total I'm taking 17 credits this spring semester and I plan on doing much better, especially since swimming will be ending and I will be used to the daily routine here. My question is: Would I have a chance at being appointed to NAPS? I know it's usually for enlisted, recruited athletes, possibly minorities and those who need some academic help, but would USNA appoint a college freshman there? Or would it just be expected that I reapply next cycle if I'm declined for c/o 2019? Wondering if someone has insight to this situation, thanks.
