    Hi, I submitted my summer seminar application today and I'm a bit concerned about my PSAT scores (63 Math 54 Reading). I will be taking the ACT on Feb. 6 and I didn't want to wait until the end of this month to receive my scores and submit my SS application then. Did I make the right choice of applying early or should I have just waited? And how much of an advantage does an early applicant have over those who apply later?:confused:

    You did right by applying to NASS at this time. It is a double application process which means the initial application is screened and if it passes this screening a second, more detailed application will be sent.

    Best wishes!

    1964--is this a new process for this year? Son applied last year and only filled out the first application and was accepted a few weeks later, there was never a second application for NASS.
    To the OP, I do agree with 1964, that its a good idea to get the app in. and those aren't horrible PSAT scores. Make sure you include Navy on your ACT score report, and that way they'll get your ACT scores automatically when they come out and they'll include them in your NASS app., if you haven't already been accepted by then.

    Question on summer seminar

    First, look through your college board info. You should be able to call and get your scores after a certain date or even on line. And you may want to call the Academy or look on the website on how to update your application. If you do call ask for the staff the handles Summer Seminar. My son had a classmate go there for Summer Seminar, he is now in his second as a Midshipman. Good Luck, let us know.

    Same for my son last year as well. Only additional thing he got was because he had checked that he would like to be contacted by a coach in his sport, so he had to fill out another online page with some basic stats, his HS coach's name, etc. But he never had a second application.

    To the OP - you will be able to see your scores online a lot earlier than the academy will receive them (especially if you're waiting for writing, which isn't critical for NASS). As soon as you can see them (assuming they're better!), I would contact your RD either by phone or email at Navy and give them the scores then.

    the whole ball of wax

    I was scheduled to take my first SATs when I applied for NASS. (I never took the psat) When I did get my scores back, they were 610 math/590 reading, which I knew I could improve but not before they would make a NASS decision. I still got accepted for NASS (and loved it)!! They really do look at the whole person, so the types of classes you take, your grades, your extra-curricular activity, your community service...all of that will be evaluated, not just your test scores.

    Good luck!

    GO NAVY!
