Hello, I am currently a sophomore at Leslie High School and I was wondering when I start getting involved in the entire application process. I know you aren't supposed to start doing all that good stuff until junior year for most colleges/universities, but I know there are a lot of extra things when it comes the the Naval Academy. I might talk to my counselor after Spring Break, but since my school hasn't really produced any Naval Academy applicants before, she might not be too familiar with the process. So could anyone fill me in? I read the "What Are My Chances" FAQ thread, but i just got the names of months. Not years like "by January of your junior year you should have blah blah blah..." I am also confused at most of the acronyms like "BGO" and "NAPS." Google was a good tool, but you can never be too sure. Anyways, I'll appreciate any help i get from you guys. Thank you.
