    Did you find out through checking your DODMERB status or did you get a letter in the mail?

    Confused parent

    OK, why are they handing out NAPS appointments when they have not finished with their regular appointments?

    And congrats on NAPS.

    Thanks in advance.

    Acceptance

    I was admitted into NAPS on Dec. 20 2010...I WAS SO EXCITED because I attended the summer seminar and I knew that going into the Naval Academy right after high school would not be the best decision...I could have handled it but I felt that if I had that extra year than I would be squared away....Anyway I am interested in connecting with people who will be attending NAPS with me this upcoming year...:redface:

    NAPS appointees are not selected from candidates who were rejected from USNA.
    Those selected for NAPS are candidates whom the Academy would like to appoint but need an extra year of prep prior (for one reason or another) to reporting to the academy.
    They do not need to wait until all appointments are made prior to begin selecting candidates for this group.

    I understand the question though. I have heard that NAPS is usually for the highly desirable yet academically less qualified. New ACT scores and semesters grades are just now available, so how can USNA make the decision on napsters in early DEC and especially in Sept like Navymidshipman2015?

    If it is a way to USNA

    and that is what you want, GO FOR IT!

    And if you accept NAPS, you can still get an appointment for this year, right? Seems like I read that somewhere.

    The explanation given to nephew by his B&G officer was also about academics, that is was a good place to be to improve or test the waters. I also think they ask you if you will go there, to see if you will do whatever it takes to make it to the USNA. My nephew told them whatever it takes.
