    Medical waiver rejection? Help!

    I was recently offered a LOA for NAPS '20, contingent on a medical waiver. Last year I had a freak kidney stone which was non obstructing and removed . DoDMERB asked for AMI so I sent them every record the hospital had on my case, and I waited. I just received correspondence from a medical...

    NAPS Appointments?

    I haven't seen anybody report NAPS appointments, which leads me to believe that a few of us who are CPR may have NAPS in store for us. Additionally, I have a question about NAPS: does NAPS have the same DoDMERB requirement as the academy? I was medically DQed, do I still have a chance to get a...

    Has anyone received an appointment to NAPS yet?

    If you receive an appointment to NAPS or a foundation school, do you still get a phone call from your congressman? Do NAPS appointments tend to be given later in the admissions cycle than USNA appointments? Thanks in advance! I’ve been so stressed these last couple of days...

    What is the application/admission process for NAPS?

    The daughter of a close friend did not receive a nomination to USNA for 2019, despite a strong application/resume. Is NAPS an option for continuing to pursue USNA admission? If so, what is the process for applying? What credentials are they looking for?

    Nomination rescinded for NAPS???

    Hi all, I originally received a nomination to the naval academy, but I noticed that it was gone from my portal last night. After frantically contacting my admissions counselor my congressman's office contacted me to let me know they had rescinded my nomination. At first I was taken aback and...

    Reserve to Naval Academy

    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...

    Current M/C at Naval Academy Preparatory School happy to answer any questions!

    I am currently attending NAPS with the class of 2018. I know while I was applying and when I got accepted to NAPS I had a lot of questions no one seemed to be able to answer. There's also a lack of information about NAPS on the web. So if you have any questions I'm happy to answer them!

    Enlistment bonus not being paid?

    I am currently about to graduate NAPS. A fight I've been having with admin all year is the payment of an enlistment bonus the Nuclear power program pays you upon graduation from power school.

    How are people notified of an appointment to NAPS?

    Hello, I was curious about how people are notified about an appointment to NAPS? My blue and gold officer is almost certain that if I were denied I'd be offered an appointment to NAPS, but how does that typically happen? Am I first denied and then later told about being able to go to NAPS? And...

What enlisted time "counts"...

    Thinking too far ahead?

    Brief explanation before the main question: I was attending enlisted Nuclear Power School when I applied for the Academy. I was ecstatic when I found out I got in. Less so when they said I had too attend NAPS. I understand it is an honor to even be considered, but I am anxious to actually...
