    Is a laid-back/carefree personality not a good fit for USNA?

    Great video - thanks! Will share with my DS - he has tremendous respect for Admiral McRaven... maybe this will motivate him to start making his bed before Plebe Summer! :)

    Is a laid-back/carefree personality not a good fit for USNA?

    Disclaimer that I'm at the same point in the process as you - no former/current Mids - just sharing my thoughts as a parent of a P2B. My DS is likewise a pretty typical teen in many regards - not great about keeping his room clean, making the bed, etc., and I can't wait for the USNA to do its...

    Anyone hear about something down at USNA?

    I saw the following in the article... "Another four are being disciplined for failing to report the behavior..." Naive/newbie question, but with honor concept violations are Mids instructed on when to report such problems vs. when to take up the issue directly with the perpetrators? Just...

    THParent, you should factor the state population into your reporting stats... something tells me California would drop sharply in the competition! ;) Happy weekend and best wishes to all!

    MOC Phone Call

    DS' MOC called our home (I was WFH and answered). It showed up as a local number with some random person's name (certainly not the MOC's name, but maybe a staff member's...?). Our MOC was hoping that he had called DS' cell phone, but then realized it would've been in the middle of school and...

    Class of 2022 DIY USNA Appointment Thread

    It's actually more than I recalled... that year (2015) Senator Lee (UT) announced 20 appointments from his noms to 3 SAs (USNA, USAFA, USMA). Even allowing for multiple nominating sources, that's pretty amazing! Anyway, NAVYCAPT93 hit the nail on the head about it not being over until the fat...

    Class of 2022 DIY USNA Appointment Thread

    Yep! We had one year where one of our Senators announced 5 appointments to a single SA that he had nominated (they may have had additional nominating sources, of course, but still...)!

    Question about the 2018 Naval Academy summer seminar?

    +1 There are many good resources (e.g., Kaplan) available for helping to improve your ACT and SAT scores. It's not just your aptitude or what you've learned in school; it really helps to learn "how" to take the test. Good luck!

    Summer Seminar 2018

    Great advice! We left our DS' clothes in in the back of a rental car for two days after NASS while touring around the area - by day-two the smell was awful and we ended up having to wash them in a hotel bathtub! Congratulations to your son on commissioning soon!

    Summer Seminar Importance

    I'm not saying you're wrong per se, but why do squad leaders make performance review notes (beyond just the CFA) about NASS attendees if that's not taken into consideration with Admissions...? About 1 out 3 USNA MIDNs attend NASS, which works out to about 1 out 6 NASS attendees ending up at the...

    Letter of Assurance but no nomination

    Good point. ISRs are the same (you can't inquire about them; they're by invitation-only). Unfortunately, I'm unable to delete my previous post.

    Letter of Assurance but no nomination

    IMO, you should keep following up with your BGO and USNA admissions officer and specifically inquire about NAPS. While kinnem is 100% right about the intent of NAPS, AFAIUI it also represents another way for them to eventually get you into the USNA without the nom - I don't think there's a...

    Preparing to Apply to USNA

    +1 DS won a 2022 USNA appointment and a NROTC Immediate Scholarship Reservation (ISR). DS had taken the ACT 3 times and SAT once and submitted all four scores (his last ACT and the one SAT were far and away the best scores). During the interview with the NRD CO for the ISR, the CO commented...
