Just some clarification that is much needed... With applications to the Academy opening on April 1st, the tension is building. I recently heard that I could potentially receive a nomination from my school's principal to the Naval Academy. Does this have any truth behind it at all? Can a principal nomination count instead of a congressional, senatorial, etc. nomination? Any help is greatly appreciated and much needed. Thanks! P.S.-- Our school is located very close to the Academy and has an outstanding JROTC Program. This could have something to do with it?? Not sure.
