    NAPS 2024 Waitlist

    Yep, the applicant had the qualifications to fit and fill a specific and needed slot, which confirms that the admissions process to a Service Academy is more than just meeting an enrollment numbers goal. I understand that it's hard to see someone jumping over those already on the WL, but...
