    I read a post from a year or two ago (I wish I could find it again to link for you) that the USNA usually has about 1200+ per class and that the candidate numbers consist of around 700+ that are either recruited athletes or female or diversity candidates; and that about 500+ are caucasian males (but not recruited athletes). Are these numbers fairly accurate?

    If accurate, it makes me wonder what the true application rate/acceptance rate is for caucasian males who are not recruited athletes? Am I correct to assume that it is lower than the USNA published acceptance rate?

    I am proud of my DS for making it this far in the process no matter what happens….and he should be proud of his accomplishment too. He is competing against the best of the best. :thumb:

    The USNA Website has a page that provides the I-Day Class of 2017 Statistics/Breakout.

    The odds do depend

    It's a part of life - some are for, some against affirmative action, but your odds of an appointment are better if you can arrange to be a minority woman than a white male. As I remember from previous posts, chances range from about 50% for a white male who is 3Qed and has a nom to 90%+ for a minority woman. However, there's nothing you can do about that except to be the strongest possible candidate - sports, ECAs, grades, test scores, the CFA, etc.

    LT...Thank you for your post! That is interesting information and a subject many folks have strong feelings for one way or another, and I guess are reluctant to discuss from the lack of responses to the question. Obviously my DS is a Caucasian male, has very competitive stats, and we are proud of him no matter what happens. I think knowledge is powerful, and I hope this information encourages all types of candidates to always do their best and apply!
