    USCGA Office Hours?

    Does anyone know if the USCGA Admissions office is open on the weekend? I have been trying to get in contact with LT Rivera for a few days, but I have not been able to reach her. I sort of have an urgent situation, which is why I am asking.

    Enlistment Contract vs Waitlist

    I recently found out that I have been waitlisted for the CGAS program. I understand that decisions for the waitlist may be available after May 1st. This normally would not be a problem, except that I have an enlistment contract with a ship date of April 29th. I understand that I will most...

    Waitlist Coast Guard Academy Scholars Program

    I have just recently been informed I have been waitlisted for the CGAS program. I'm very lucky to have gotten this far, as I did not even think I would have a substantial chance of even being considered. Can anyone provide information about last year's CGAS waitlist and the chances of getting...

    Prior Enlisted Navy Question

    Thank you, that was a very helpful document. You said that only 85 regular Navy Sailors can be charged to this category. I'm assuming the other 85 are Marine Corps members? If so, do you think that there are more or less Marines who apply to the Naval Academy/seek a SECNAV nomination compared to...

    Prior Enlisted Navy Question

    SECNAV nominations do not require as much academic rigors. Many Congressional Nominations look over things such as SAT scores, while the SECNAV nomination does not.

    I understand that if you are not admitted into the U.S. Naval Academy, you are automatically considered for an appointment to NAPS. My question is this: If you would receive admission into USNA, but cannot secure a Congressional Nomination, are you still considered for NAPS? If you are admitted...

    Letter of Recommendation Question

    I'm not sure I could impress any of them, though I completed my work very quickly well before the due dates (I got ahead and completed the courses long before the courses officially ended when possible). I did get good feedback, however I'm not sure how thorough it can be with simple phrases...

    I understand that I will need a letter of recommendation from an English instructor. However, as a community college student, I have not had an English class in a while (I tested out of English a while ago). I understand that instead, the letter of recommendation may come from another Humanities...
