    Hello everybody,

    I am currently filling out my preliminary app for the naval academy and was wondering about whether I should wait until I get my SAT results in june so I could add those in, or if I should just put in my act scores. The reason for asking this is that while I have decent act scores, I feel like I did much better on the sat.

    Thanks in advance.

    It won't matter too much because they superscore. But IMPO you should wait because they won't look at any applications until July or August.

    As long as your ACT scores are above the minimum (which I believe is a 26) then you should just go ahead and submit the questionnaire. The purpose of the pre-candidate questionnaire is simply to see if you meet the minimum requirements and have the potential to get an appointment. For me, I figured it was to my advantage to submit it early so that my portal opened up earlier and I could get started on submitting documents. If you are still in school, I would definitely encourage you to submit it. My CIS opened up while I was still in school and this enabled me to get my math, English, and counselor recommendations completed already. They definitely "look at applications" before July or August because they processed my preliminary application in April...

    They will still see your SAT scores eventually. But you might as well submit the preliminary app as soon as possible so that you can get to work on the other stuff.

    My DS took the SAT 3 times and came up some each time. We sent the scores to USNA. They updated them on his portal each time. He didn't have to do anything besides list USNA as one of the recipients when he took the test
