    Admissions Question

    I watched a USNA Admissions live stream and they said that the earlier you submit your application, the earlier the board will review it. What does this mean and how does the process work? If this is the case why do they take so long to deliver appointments?

    Admission Competition

    When I went to NASS (Naval Academy Summer Seminar) one of the midshipmen told me that to get an appointment you are really only competing against people from your state. They continued to say that this is why it's very hard to get an appointment from Virginia or Maryland (I am from South...

    Are the majority of slots already filled up for the class of 2023?

    I fully intend on reapplying if I don't get in this time around because it's been my dream to serve my country and attend USNA. I haven't received a TWE yet and I'm just wondering if it's ridiculous to think I could be appointed at this point in the process. When do they typically respond if so...

    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.

    Admissions Question

    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?

However I no longer use any of these substances and...
