    College Student

    Hello all, I am a third-year community college student, still waiting to hear back from the Academy. I read somewhere that the admissions office reviews college students' applications last. Is that true? In addition, out of all the applicants, does the academy make sure to accept a certain...

    Question About Walk-on Athletes

    How common is it for athletes to participate in a Varsity sport here without being recruited? Additionally, do coaches allow for "team managers" and allow for students to participate in practices and, even if they're not first string? Also, are there any cases where a person may not make the...

    Can a visit to USMMA help boost my chances of admission/receiving an appointment?

    I am wondering if it is beneficial to my application if I can go visit now (and demonstrate showing an interest), or should I sit tight (and not miss school and take an expensive trip) and let the process play out. Thanks for any thoughts or advice!

    File completion

    Do you need everything on your portal overview to have green check marks next to them by the 31st or are the yellow arrows good as well? (I think yellow arrows mean sent in but not reviewed) Also does the DodMerb need to be completed by the 31st as well?

    I have most of my application finished (All I have to do is record my push-ups) and I keep reading on these forums about a field force representative interview. However, on the application portal, there is no space where it says field force interview, all the other categories have a red 'x' by...

    Are CFA Standards the same throughout the Service Academies?

    When I went to the Naval Academy summer seminar I took a CFA and passed it. My naval academy application is finished and submitted.

    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?

    What Sections of the ACT does the Naval Academy Care About?

    When I went to NASS one of the admissions briefs talked about USNA only caring about the English and Math section and how they superscore between the SAT and ACT.

    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...

    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...
