    Trouble with LOR/app portal

    I put down and saved all my recommenders and evaluators, yet they say that they have not received any emails from USNA. I tried deleting them and re-entering them with no luck. (The app says once I press ‘save’ it will automatically send them an email). I tried emailing USNA with no response...

    As a homeschooler, what were some things you had on your resume that helped you get into the Academy?

    I'm sure that someone has already posted a thread like this, but I wanted to hear it from someone with a more recent perspective since I'm sure standards change each year. I am part of a charter school, but am technically homeschooled. What are some extracurriculars/sports you've done as a...

    Do you need several forms/medical exams when you apply to several service academies?

    I know that completing a medical exam is a requirement for attending a service academy. Do you need to complete several forms and have several exams done for each Service Academy, or could you just use one form for all?

    Can you apply to NAPS separately and still get into the Academy afterwards?

    I've heard that most people who attend NAPS get into the Naval Academy. Is it possible to apply for NAPS and then just transfer to USNA, or is NAPS by invitation only?
