Anyone heard back about their STEM application?
I don't think they're sending them out for a while.
Not yet! It would be nice if they did respond sooner. I am jumping the gun, but the flight from California would be much cheaper if I could buy it now. Does anyone know how rigid the arrival times are? I have not found a flight to arrive in the time frame they give.
On your application, did it ask you anywhere to send in letters of recommendation? I just want to make sure I didn't miss it. Also, do you know how to add something to it, like a new leadership position in a club?
I had the same problem and i contacted admissions, they said it can not be changed.
Yeah I'm angry because I thought it would be good to apply early, but then it turned out I had some other good stuff to put on that didn't happen until after. Just checking, no one sent in letters of recomendation, right?
--Did not send in a letter of rec.
--There is a bus pick up at the airport three times on the arrival date. There are Mids who welcome the kids.
--Have not heard anything as of yet. Usually will not hear till early May.
A Redeye is what mine took. Depending where in CA you live and your proximity to a major airport, if you end up at the Academy, going back a day earlier or Redeyes may be in your future.
Did anyone have PSAT or SAT/ACT scores on their application?
No, I'm to young
--My Son did post his ACT Scores.
--My Son has attended the STEM Program for the past three years. We are truly blessed and humbled that he continues to be selected.
--We hope he is selected to attend this summer, he is hoping to make football camp there also, prior to attending agility and speed training.
--My Wife and I visited last summer, and put Boots on the Ground. This is what we gathered:
1. The Navy is giving some great opportunities to some kids.
2. The Navy is checking these kids out when they come.
3. The Navy is seeing what kids really want to come to Navy.
4. The Navy is looking for kids who "fit" Navy.
5. The Navy is looking for kids who are physically fit.
6. The Navy is looking for good athletics. Look at their record.
NAVY is attracting young kids in a very, very smart way with this STEM Program.
If anyone agrees or disagrees, I am open!
Just wanting to check if anyone has heard yet about STEM acceptances?
It seems that people that have gotten in previous years all received there acceptances in late April. But to answer your question, no.
For a new challenge for youngsters who have completed 9th grade, you might consider Navy's SEAP program which is an intern program for high schoolers from 10th through 12th grades. There are about 50 Navy units participating from coast to coast. The program is 8 weeks duration and there is a stipend paid to participants. Check for more information at www.seap.asee.org for details. The program has a sign-up in that seems to start in November or December, so this summer's participants are set, but next summer's applicants should get familiar with the program now. Best Wishes.
Thank you for bringing up the opportunity, it looks like a stellar program.
