    As a self-prep what would be my chances of being accepted to a service academy? I have not applied to any of them, and I was planning on just going straight to NMMI.

    they're actually pretty good. I did the same thing and went to a prep school this past year and I didn't apply to the AFA last year, but I did this year as a backup to USNA and it looks like I'm gonna get in (even though I've already gotten into USNA so I won't be going to AFA)

    I paid my way through btw and wasn't on scholarship, which is what i think you're saying you want to do.

    How much was it without scholarship? And which prep school did you go to?

    It was like $7000 and I went to Northwestern Prep School. I've heard it's the cheapest of all the prep schools though so I'm not too sure about the other ones like NMMI.

    As for your OP: Last year the rate was 50% for the 14 cadets we had in the self prep program during the second semester. Of these, one had a triple appointment and two had "doubles". Last year was a good year, as 35-40% is the historical norm.

    It's hard to predict from year to year though. There are too many variables that affect things. Some are completely beyond the student's control. The relative strength of the candidate' package as compared to others wanting an appointment, the size limitations of the incoming class at a particular academy, and the total number of applicants to any academy.

    I will say this though. Start working your nomination package as soon as you are able to. This will give you a great start for the class of 2016 at academy "X". I also ask you read this http://www.nmmi.edu/prep/welcome.htm to help get yourself going in the right direction.

    Good luck!
