Program announcements for Naval Academy Summer Seminar for rising seniors and the Science. Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program for grades 8 through 11 should hit the www.usna.edu/Admissions site this weekend. If you are interested, get your applications started early. These are excellent opportunities to see some of the inner workings of USNA. It is tough to get selected so don't get blindsided. BTW selection to NASS does not ensure an offer of appointment, nor does non-selection predict that you won't get an offer - HONEST! Actually about 40% of the new plebes will not have attended NASS. Give it your best shot, and good luck!
