    ACT Superscore

    Here is the deal: I got a 33 on my first ACT (35 English 35 Math 30 Reading 31 S/R) I just took the 10/24 ACT and feel I might have improved on English and Math to a point where I could have gotten a 36, which obviously would look better in terms of a superscore. However, for Reading and S/R I...

    USNA ACT

    Hi guys, I am really, really confused. I need a final clarification. I understand that the USNA considers only two of the ACT sections. I know one is the Math.

    Foreign Language and Active duty

    First of all, sorry if this question's already been asked, it's kinda hard to specify this in the search tool. I was basically just wondering if whether a foreign language minor affects where a graduate is stationed. For example, if I chose to minor in Arabic, would there be an increased chance...

    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...

    USNA DoDMERB (specifically drug and alcohol abuse)

    Posting this in USNA as recommended by usna1985... I'm well aware that if I attend USNA, it is very hard to land a slot in intel when you initially commission. However, I came across that there are Option programs where you serve X amount of time as a SWO and then automatically transfer to...

    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...

    Does anyone know until when will they release acceptances or denials for the online summer STEM 2020? Several of my friends said that they have already received emails last week confirming their acceptance to summer STEM. Since I haven't received an email yet, does that mean that I didn't get...

    International Baccalaureate (IB) vs. Dual Enrollent

    Hello. Sorry if this has already been asked in the past. I tried to find an answer to my question, but I didn't find one that matched it. I know that IB and Dual Enrollment are different things. Does the Naval Academy look at them the same, or do they prefer one over the other? Also, I didn't...
