    Sit-ups for 2021 CFA

    Hi! I'm preparing for the CFA at NASS/SLE (hopefully), and I've seen a lot of different information on the sit-ups. I'm not sure if its sit ups (feet under something, elbows to mid-thigh) or simple crunches (feet not under something, just getting shoulder blades off the ground). If anyone could...

    Request for Information - is it necessary?

    I'm currently filling out my application to NASS, and I noticed on the USNA Admissions website a link that takes you to a "Request for Information" form. It seems like an important form (it requires social security numbers, addresses, etc). I haven't heard anything about this form, and I was...

    Just finished Virtual NASS - AMA

    If anyone had any questions about what to expect for Virtual NASS I'd be happy to answer them. I won't divulge too much as to "spoil" the program for anyone scheduled to take part later down the road. The basic schedule was as follows (EST): 0900-1000: Personal Exercise Program 1230-1600...

    NASS Acceptance?

    Have NASS acceptance letters come out? If so, are they all out or do they come out on a rolling basis? I applied two days after applications opened and have not heard much since. Is this a bad sign?

    This past week I was fortunate enough to be granted the opportunity to attend the Naval Academy Summer Seminar as well as the Air Force Academy Summer Seminar. My dad and I decided that I was going to attend both. I understand this it's going to be a challenging couple of weeks. That being said...

    Emailing MOC Offices

    Hi everyone. I’m a current junior in high school and now that it’s almost 2020 I am beginning my SA application journey. I was wondering from anyone’s past experience if you would recommend for me to email my MOC’s nomination office just to introduce myself and who I am? If anyone did this...

    NASS Question---is the MRE right before CFA routine, or a fluke?

    DS texted a photo of his MRE for the meal right before the CFA Sunday at this week's NASS session. He knew they have MRE at one meal as part of the NASS experience, but it seemed odd timing to do that right before CFA? We wondered if this was intentional "stress experience" because they had...

    Preliminary Application

    Around December of last year I applied for NASS, hoping that an earlier application would give me a decent shot at attending the program, and, foolishly, I had submitted my applications prior to taking my SAT or ACT. After reading more in depth about it, I understand they use scores from one or...

    I Need Help

    So I was accepted into Session 2 of the summer seminar. I think I made a mistake. I do not think I am physically prepared to go to nass. I am unable to run a mile straight without walking, let alone run a mile in under 10 minutes, I cant do 20 straight push ups, and cant complete one pull up...

    Chances of getting off Summer Seminar waitlist?

    I just learned that I was waitlisted to USNA Summer Seminar, how often is it that people get off the wait list? I think I have a generally solid app (35 ACT, national-level award, solid speech/leadership side) even though I don't have stuff like JROTC on it, if that helps give any context.

    NASS confirmation

    I was recently accepted into NASS. I submitted my payment and my forms to the proper places. I recieved a confirmation email from the payment place, but I haven't received a confirmation email for my forms. Am I just being paranoid? Or should I contact admissions to see if there was issue with...

    Flying to BWI for NASS Session 1 from N. California
