    My DS received an email today informing him he was selected to participate in the 2013 Summer Seminar. He was given the second session to attend. Very excited for the opportunity. He had previously been a STEM participant up at the Academy. He applied the first day the application opened up on line. We were surprised he heard so soon.

    Congratulations! I went last year and it definitely sold me on the academy. From the first day I knew that this academy was the one for me. The highlights are the Sea Trials, Indoc, and visit to the USNA cemetery late at night (definitely very humbling and puts everyone in the right mindset).

    Congrats! This is really soon, now to hope I hear back on my STEM app soon! From what I've read, NASS sounds like something I'm definitely going to shoot to go to.

    Outstanding News...

    Jupiter035,

    All the very best to your DS... Without going too deep into details, what part of the country do you live and are you in the country or city?

    If you decline to answer I would completely understand.

    Thank you...

    NASS acceptance

    Congratulations! My DS received the email this morning! Soooo excited! Also thinks he's pretty cool to travel by himself because, apparently, no moms allowed! We live in a southwest suburb of Chicago (about 40 miles away). Good luck!

    I applied at like 7 am the day it opened and haven't heard anything. does that mean I probably didn't get in?

    No, it does not mean you did not get in. You will be notified if you are not a candidate for the summer session- I believe by April. My DS was not notified until late March last year and was appointed a session that conflicted with Boy's State. He requested a change in sessions and was told he may not get in and was put on a wait list. USNA contacted him a week later and gave him the session that would accomadate SS and Boy's State. Best wishes.

    Is anybody else unable to access the online tuition payment page to pay the NASS fee?

    I know someone who applied on Day 1. Didn't get any word until after April 15 (there were some unexpected notification issues) and got in. Now has an LOA.

    Do keep in mind, however, that NASS is a recruiting tool to showcase USNA to folks who haven't heard about it and that the "strongest" candidates aren't always the ones accepted.

    We finally got that link to work today after not working the previous day, but it says the candidate number doesn't match their records!

    and the other links won't work still. has anyone called?

    True story, I now have an offer of appointment and previously had an LOA, even though I was waitlisted for NASS. I did eventually get in off the waitlist, after about a week I believe.
    Moral of the Story: Don't procrastinate on your NASS application, and even if you think you didn't get in, you might end up with a slot.

    NASS Payment

    Today our DD received her email notification of being accepted into NASS. Question, where do we go to make payment? Is that a separate email since there were no instructions on the email she received.
