    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...

    Prior Enlisted Navy Question

    Does anybody know how competitive it is to receive a nomination from the Secretary of the Navy as a prior enlisted sailor? Is it easier than securing a nomination from a Congressional Representative? I don't think I could stand a chance at securing a Congressional nomination required for admissions.

    NAPS Question

    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...

However, as a community college student, I have not had an English class in a while (I tested out of English a while ago).

    If you are/were a successful USCGA applicant who gained admission, what do you think were some of the determining factors that helped you get in?

    Resume Format

    In my application to the USCGA, do you guys think it is worth it to include a resume? I think a lot of it would be a rehash of what is already in the essays or extra-curricular stuff. Additionally, is there a specific format that is recommended for the resume?

    Essay Question

    As I write my admissions essays, I have a few questions regarding some of the content. For the first question, Why might a person wish to join the Coast Guard Academy? Besides the standard generalizations of free education, and a great career, I feel as if I can't give a lot of reasoning as to...

    Plebe Class Prep

    So I know that USNA prefers that people who apply after graduating from high school have university college experience. However, I am only able to afford classes at community college. What is the general stance on community college candidates? I have tried my best to take a community college...

    Prior Enlisted Navy

    I have a few questions about prior-enlisted navy sailors. Does anyone know if USNA prefers prior-enlisted members to have a certain job, such as nukes? Or does USNA just want to see solid job performance, regardless of the job? Also, does it make a difference if you're prior enlisted Navy or...
