What is the average SAT or ACT scores for a blue chip athlete to get into a SA??
I would guess that depends on the sport, how bad they want you, how good you are and what the rest of your package looks like. I think the biggest benefit to being a blue chip or recruited athlete is that you generally find out earlier.
Not all blue chips find out early. Any LOAs given out are conditional upon completion of application (the application is no shorter for an athlete) and as we all know by the time you do DODMERB remedials and nomination paperwork (yes coaches tell you to apply for all nomination sources still) it can take some time.
As far as SATs, I would target as high as possible. They provide an average for previous classes, I would always make that the goal. The reality is no one can answer this question as things such as what sport, how bad they want you, what were your grades and classes in high school?
I have already verbally committed and I mostly A's and a few B's. I needed to know whether I should take them and improve my score!
How much does USNA know about an athlete such as a blue chip junior before the verbal commitment? Is there some sort of preliminary screening done to ensure that the candidate will be competitive with admissions, MOC boards and most importantly as a mid? Do many athletes verbally commit early only to be later denied appointment or NAPS for academic reasons?
Aim for a 1400 with 650+ math
If money isn't an issue, then why wouldn't you take them again? Your goal should be to improve to best you can.
If you're a senior, the last test date was Jan. 31. Thus, it appears the question is moot.
