    Enlisting in Army

    Howdy Y’all, I am interested in applying to USNA and USMA. However, I would also like to enlist in the army this year (split op). My recruiter told me if I decided to go USNA, I would first have to finish AIT. Since USNA BCT starts late June, is there any way I can finish my AIT before then...

    Scholarship uniform stipend

    DS received the NROTC National Scholarship and I know he will get reimbursed for the uniform fee. He is attending Norwich which is a Corps of Cadet SMA. Will he be refunded the full costs of the uniform fee (roughly $2300) or just the portion of Navy uniforms he receives? TIA

    Board Decisions

    I know that all scholarships are handled by a board at NSTC, headed by Admiral Bernacchi, but how are contracts (commissions without the tuition) handled? I've heard some say that the same board decides those as well, or that the board sees the number of applicants each year and issues the...

    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.

    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...

    Prior Enlisted Navy

    I have a few questions about prior-enlisted navy sailors. Does anyone know if USNA prefers prior-enlisted members to have a certain job, such as nukes? Or does USNA just want to see solid job performance, regardless of the job? Also, does it make a difference if you're prior enlisted Navy or...

    Im hoping there are some of you who know the answer to this. I am enlisted in the Air Force and have been in for a long time.
