    With regards to the personal statement (essay) the directions state:

    "ESSAY MUST BE COMPLETED BEFORE SUBMITTING THIS APPLICATION. If you are currently attending NAPS or are a Foundation sponsored student, the personal statement is not required. If you were a previous applicant, you must submit a new Personal Statement.

    In a well-organized essay of 300 to 500 words, please discuss the following:

    (1) Describe what led to your initial interest in the naval service and how the Naval Academy will help you achieve your long range goals, and
    (2) Describe a personal experience you have had which you feel has contributed to your own character development and integrity.
    We recommend that you type the essay using a word processor. When it is complete, cut and paste it into this location."



    My question, (I know I am over thinking this). However are they asking for two separate essays with subject (1) as the first essay and than subject (2) as another essay. OR are they asking for one essay combined answering both (1) and (2) in 300-500 words?


    thank you for your advice.

    Yes, one essay that answers both. And word of advice: keep your essay in the word limit. Nothing upsets admissions more than students who don't follow word limits, and worse, submit super long essays.

    Does the essay change every year, or does it stay the same?
