    Standardized testing and triple qualified

    College GPA vs letter grade

    I am a college reapplicant for the class of 2020 and today I figured out that the only way to get a 4.0 is to get all A+'s and that A-'s count as about a 3.7 on a GPA. So my question is does USNA really care too much about actual gpa as long as I'm getting A's in my courses? Thanks for any help.

    Standardized testing and triple qualified

    I completed my application in the summer and had all CFA and DoDMERB stuff in very early. USNA was of course my first choice so I was very on top of that application.

    2nd semester senior grades

    Im currently a senior now reapplying for the class of 2020. How much does USNA look at your High school transcript when considering a college re applicant. I got a nom this year and kept my senior year grades up pretty well except for one class I couldve done better in which I'm retaking this...

    In a way I have been preparing myself to receive possible bad news ever since the beginning. So of course I'm still upset but I am also glad I am going to get the opportunities to better myself now before possibly going to Navy (hopefully!). I honestly think I would have had somewhat of a tough...

    I plan on doing NROTC at NC State and majoring in either some type of engineering or physics. I also plan on attending summer school at NC State this summer to get ahead and stay competitive. In the end a year of regular college is not so bad. Should I get accepted to USNA class of 2020 that...

    So got home today and as always checked my mailbox. And it turns out I got the dreaded TWE and was not offered an appointment to the class of 2019. I was not waitlisted either. It seem like I got my rejection early. I had a congressional nomination as my nomination source. Does this mean they...

    Review Status?

    Someone on the forum mentioned in a post that they heard that their application was being reviewed this week. How did they find out about this? Did that call USNA or does USNA send out a letter or email or something telling you this? Thanks for any help regarding this.

    Can I still get an appointment?

    1st semester grades

    Does USNA automatically get sent your 1st semester grades or do they have to request it? And do they look at grades before a certain date for example anything before say November 29th (just a random date) or do they wait for you to finish mid terms and take that grade. Just curious. I heard of...

    I just attended NASS session 2 and I just have a real quick question. Does going to NASS really have any effect on your application. I understand the detailers write evaluations at the end. So does NASS really have any effect or hold any weight in your application. Thanks Sent using the...
