I am a Junior, class of 2013. I have already applied for Summer Seminar. I understand that that is the preliminary application. If/when I get in, I also understand that you can become an official candidate to apply at USNA depending on how qualified the selection committee sees you to be. I live in Annapolis, Maryland and know that my chances of getting into the Summer Seminar will be much harder since I live in the area, but I am technically being a "recruited athlete". Not sure how much this will affect the process, but if I do not get in solely because of the fact that I live in Annapolis, is it still possible for me to become an official candidate to apply to the Academy? Also, when does the online application come out to actually apply to USNA? Any help would be great. Thanks.
