Hey I was browsing the USNA site for the admission steps and found their official page regarding this information. I went through the steps and at step 3 titled "preliminary application" it says (if you scroll down a little): Applications for the class of 2017 will open on April 1st 2012. I'm assuming these applications are not the preliminary applications we filled out for NASS? I noticed that there is no step of the ten steps listed that talks about filling out an APPLICATION as opposed to a PRELIMINARY APPLICATION. Can anyone clear things up for me? What information/things do we need to complete this "application" that opens on the first of April? Thanks.
