    Hangout: USNA Induction Day / I-Day Class of 2028: Thursday 27 June 2024

    HELP! Trying to give someone good/updated advice. For those arriving with no prior affiliation with the military or the Naval Academy (NAPS, PRIOR, already possesses a dmibs card), What do you need to access the yard (drive them onto yard) for your incoming plebe to report? Permission to...

    NAPS Waitlisted

    It’s a significant number. To be honest, if you don’t receive the appointment to the USNA out of NAPs, it’s pretty much because you didn’t want one (broke the rules, didn’t take care of business in the classroom, didn’t take care of fitness, etc..).

    USNA Class of 2028 Waiting and Speculating

    If you navigate NAPS without any violations, trouble, etc. it’s asclose to a sure thing as you can get…. Without it being labeled a sure thing.. To me, NAPS is THEE Golden ticket. You get a fully funded PREP year to (more) ensure you are better prepared for plebe summer and your Naval Academy stay.

    USNA Class of 2028 Waiting and Speculating

    It is that simple. You applied, didn’t get in the first time, and you don’t apply again = you really didn’t want it as bad as others. I think we can agree the process does test your desire to attend. That desire will be tested by the process, and will be tested if you get in, etc..

    So you would have turned down NAPS or Foundation? Either way, your desire and willingness to serve is commendable…

    USNA Class of 2028 Waiting and Speculating

    I think it’s more of a boilerplate email with blanket guidance on “focus areas” for the next year while you wait to reapply. Frankly, I think the turn down communication should give some semi-specific indication on areas where she/he didn’t stack up as well vs the local competition. For...

    USNA Class of 2028 Waiting and Speculating

    For those that didn’t get in this first try, I’ve been shocked at the number of plebes and Napsters that I met these past couple of years that didn’t get in the first try but wound up as plebes via NROTC/reapply route, foundation, “from the fleet”, BOOST, etc. it’s real. This initial setback...

    Roller coaster I: Get You (The Parents) Through Plebe Year - Class of ‘27 🎢

    Some plebes miss it if they draw “Zero block”training. Cool tradition that makes for some great photos and cases of pink eye…:-). I wouldn’t spend a fortune to attend but if you can make it, it’s a fun spectacle to take in.
