    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...

    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 Session 1

    Hello all! Is anyone else attending NASS Session 1? If so, we should make a group chat and move it off the site. I saw another thread for NASS Session 3 doing this to make connections. PM me if interested.

    Prelim App

    I applied to NASS but was denied, I have a 4.3 GPA and reported my 1380 PSAT scores on the NASS app. Now that it was submitted as a prelim app, should I email USNA my newest SAT (1450) to maximize my chances as becoming an official applicant? Am I even allowed to update my prelim app? Thanks!
