    NASS & AFASS

    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...

    Summer Seminar acceptance thread

    I thought I would make a thread for Summer Seminar Acceptances and rejections, so hopefuls next year could know where they stand. So when those emails go out(could be any day now), let’s list ourselves on this thread. I was thinking this format: (Username) // (Accepted/Rejected) // (State) //...

    Summer Seminar: Send both SAT and PSAT scores?

    I scored pretty bad on the PSAT and got a 1200 (620 Reading 580 Math) then I did a little bit of prep on math and scored a 1300 (640 reading 660 math) on my SAT. Should I still send both scores as I improved by 100 points or would it be best to leave the PSAT out of the equation. Side note: I...

    Summer Seminar work experience question

    If I did not have a leadership role where I used to work, should I still list it? I only worked at McDonald's but I don't know if leaving out information, even if it is mundane, is a good idea.

    USAFA Summer Seminar App minor questions

    Is it a bad idea to have multiple sentences in the profile section? (Not the essay of course). The application says to include aspirations for the summer seminar so should I include that in the essay even though addressing the summer seminar doesn't fit into the essay prompt (Describe an...

    Boys State vs SLCDA, which one is more important to Academy Admissions if you could only attend one of them?

    If a USNA candidate were to apply to Boys State and SLCDA, and he were fortunate enough to be offered a spot at both programs, but they both happen to be held during the same week so that he could only attend one of them, which one should he choose? We know that all of the service academies...

    If I don't know, should I assume?

    I'm a student that has applied to USNA and USAFA. I got accepted to both summer seminars, my blue and gold officer told me that I am an extremely competitive applicant, and I got two nominations to USNA and one to USAFA, but I haven't heard anything back yet. Should I just assume that I haven't...

    Boys State or NA Summer Seminar?

    Unfortunately my weeks overlap. Which one do you think would give me a better experience and would look better on an application for any college (including USNA, and USAFA)?

    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.
