    every person who receives a recommendation from the commanding officer at naps will receive an appointment to the academy. the vast majority of those will have graduated naps with a 2.0 gpa.there are a handful of special cases, but in any case, show you are trying and constantly making positive...

    Company lists are out

    what i'm saying is that until that information is mailed to you, the only way to access it is on the naval academy DOD network. there is a reason that information is secures the way it is.

    plebes do not rate media unless granted by the training staff or required for a foreign language. my company makes us check out our headphones for foreign languages. they collected everyone's so we aren't even allowed to have them. and takinga foreign language plebe year isn't a gpa killer...

    NAPS Summer

    sort of, but not really anything like plebe summer. there is an approximately three week period called INDOC. during this time you will have physical development as well as orientation to the base and way of life at NAPS. the program transitions you from being civilian to being "in the...

    Dodmerb disqualifier

    I still say the prep school is not a wasted year. I know it seems like it now, but it will give him a leg up when he does go to the academy. I could be wrong on this, but i'm pretty sure that DODMERB still has to approve you for even that. Good Luck.

    Dodmerb disqualifier

    Not sure what prep school or academy you are refering to, but as far as athletics are concerned he won't be losing a year of training by going to a prep school, espcially if it is the academy-specific prep school. Athletics don't always come second. Here at Navy it is a third of our...

    USNA 2013

    get used to counting days! lol. "sir, you now have 33 days until spring break, 97 days until 2/c ring dance, and 102 days until first class graduation, sir!" that's what i would say if they asked me right now. it's worse during plebe summer when you have like seven dates to remember...

    Prep School?

    Good info: thanks for putting that out, but I have to disagree. I attended NAPS last year and in the application system for the Academy, every NAPSter received the Secretary of the Navy appointment. Yes, during the year we are required to attempt to get another nomination. At the same time, no...

    I-Day Blood Work, Chicken Pox Titer vs Vaccine

    They did the test here at NAPS for us and made us get the vaccine if you did not have "enough immunity". When I was little, I had the worst case of chicken pox my doctor's had ever seen and I had to get the vaccine, all the painful doses. So do not count on not having to get the vaccine if you...

    Lords of Discipline (re: Citadel, VMI)

    This is by far my favorite book. And I'm not a Pat Conroy fan. As far as taking it for actual life at the Ctiadel, don't. It's not based on the current El Cid and shouldn't be taken as such. However, I believe it is an extrodinarily well written FICTION.
