    I am a Sophomore currently and am wondering does USNA use STEM as purely a recruitment camp or does it have some effects on an application to the academy like the Summer Seminar would?

    Between the two answers you listed, I guess it was a recruitment camp because of the following reasons:

    A. STEM is not as highly advertised as NASS.
    B. STEM was more based on academics and interest towards math/science.
    C. It was a chance for younger students to visit/stay at USNA for a week.
    D. Unlike NASS, I am pretty sure you were not evaluated on your performance.
    (these are all inferences based on my experience last summer)

    There were a few people I met that seemed unmotivated about applying. Yet again, there is at least 2 people I met last summer that have been accepted to NASS already.

    120 were selected from about 1000 (a lot less than the number of people that apply to NASS).
    I guess by going to STEM, USNA notices that you had an early interest in USNA.

    I went to STEM in 2010 as the same age you were and had a blast. I think you might even get to see the SS kids as it does overlap
