    NASS Sessions

    I got accepted into NASS yesterday, but I need to switch my session due to a schedule change with a prior volunteering commitment. Has anyone requested a session change and been successful? How long did it take to hear back?

    Summer Stem ~ Class of 2027

    Reading the forums is a pleasant way to spend an evening or three and I want to thank you all for building them into the helpful things they've become. Tonight my son submitted his USNA 2020 Summer STEM application and my wife and I couldn't be more happy. The process was straight forward and...

    Waiting list

    How exactly does one get put onto the waiting list? And is the waiting list for kids that don’t have a nomination?

    Weekend Life

    I am currently in the process in applying to USNA and have done extensive research about the academy. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find out what the midshipmen do on the weekends (Yes I know you don’t get much free time) but what do they do?

    Pre-Plebe Summer Training Suggestions

    Hi everyone! I’m working to gather up and send out all of the required documents to get ready for USNA this summer. I was just wondering if any of you had suggestions as to how I can ensure I’m physically prepared for PS? Naturally, I’m as nervous as anyone about being prepared, especially...

    Update — LOA/No Nom

    Hi everyone! I hope you’re all having a great Friday. I was about to call the admissions office a couple of minutes ago to get an update on my admission status. Instead, I checked my portal and I saw that I received the VP nomination this morning! I’m so beyond excited. Thank you to everyone...

    Should I Email the Director of Noms/Appts for USNA?

    Hi everyone! I forgot to mention that the Director of Noms/Appts emailed me March 7th asking if I’d accept an appointment in the event I received the VP nomination (I’m that LOA/no nomination case!). So, since I’ve been trying to get a status update, I was wondering if it’d be worth a try to...

    7 Days — Nothing Yet

    Hi all! It’s been 7 days since the admissions decision deadline for USNA, I still haven’t heard back. LOA, no nomination as some of you know. What would any of you suggest doing? I feel like it’s best to just wait, but just waiting makes me even more anxious. Thank you!

    4 Days Past Admission Decisions — Still Haven’t Heard Back

    Hi everyone! I’m still waiting! I was wondering if anybody else is too? Should I email my admissions counselor or just continue waiting? I’ve already accepted plan B, but if I were offered an appointment, either to USNA or NAPS, I’d take it. I have an LOA, no nomination, and considering I...

    Other Possible Nomination Sources

    Hi all! I have an LOA for USNA but no nomination. I was just wondering if there were ANY other possible nom sources as of now other than VP, which I already applied for. Is it still possible to receive a nomination followed by an appointment by other any sources? Thank you in advance!

    Question about the Possibility of NAPS

    Hi everyone! I have an LOA from USNA, no nomination. Is it still a possibility to receive any nomination at this point (applied for VP) or to even be offered a spot at NAPS? Or a spot with the Foundation? Are appointments post April 15th possible? Thank you in advance!

    Aviation Help

    I'm honored and truly blessed to be in the current "dilemma" that I am in. Last week I got into Naval Academy Prep. I also got into USMA and now I've also received an appointment to USAFA. I love all three academies and am most in love with USAFA and USMA. I want to pursue a career in aviation...

    Does any priors know what a 3270 document is and why i might need to submit it? I ran into another applicant who happened to be an admin clerk and he mentioned that i should submit it but didn't mention what it was used for.

    Nomination Timeline

    I have just received my Conditional Offer of Appointment (LOA) to USNA, but I still need a nomination. I have two interviews this weekend and another in 2 weeks. I was wondering how long after the interviews will I hear back if I received the nomination or not?

    Attending USAFA, considering applying to USMA

    This is not a typical situation so I am asking for guidance from anyone who may have experienced something similar or knows someone who did. Up until the end of my junior year of high school I planned on applying to USMA. That being said, I applied for all summer seminar programs at the 3 major...
