    A co-worker told me that he and his son are driving from Denver to Salt Lake City to attend a 3 hour Naval Academy Admissions Forum on March 17. Does anyone know if this event will be held in the Denver area down the road. It would save them a 16 hour roundtrip plus an overnight stay at a hotel if there is. Thanks

    Here is the entire published schedule.
    I'm sure there will be more in the fall. Perhaps one in conjunction with the AF football game near Colorado Springs, possibly even Denver.

    I got an invitation to this forum in the form of a TWE, and being a candidate my heart sunk thinking it was the rejection letter. Fortunately it was not, but was this a mistake by admissions? Reading the invitation, it appears to be towards juniors in high school looking to apply, not seniors in high school waiting for a decision from the academy.

    The admissions forums are designed for those who have limited exposure to the Academy.
    Certainly, if you have ANY questions about programs, careers, etc., it would be worthwhile to attend.

    You should not undertake extradordinary measures to attend [3 hour drive!] in the thinking that attendance will improve your chances for selection. The forums are simply not set up for that.

    You will get a chance to visit with some mids. You will get a chance to shake hands and say "hello" to some admissions representatives.
    you will see some slides, some videos, hear some music [maybe], and hear great things about the academy.

    Teh target audience is, indeed, high shcool juniors and younger. It is, especially at this time of the year, too late for a senior to gain much from a forum unless they intend to apply the following year.
