    Readmission of former Midshipmen

    USNA69- Thank you for your response and input. I have spoken to Admissions and I do not have to go through the entire process again. Do you have any insight on what is the determining factor when deciding to readmit a former Midshipman?

    Hello

    Hello, I am Corey O'Donnell. I am a former member of the class of 2009 at USNA. I have spent the last year and a half at a civilian institution. I am attempting to gain readmission to USNA. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Readmission of former Midshipmen

    Does anyone know of any former midshipman being readmitted? Also, what is the admissions board looking to see to readmit a former Midshipman? I was able to voluntarily resign due to academic deficiencies.
