The application was good in all other aspects but the GPA was less than stellar
He received a sports scholarship to a religious liberal arts college. They have a "whole person" concept curriculum so the first semester he was given his schedule and not given the opportunity to beef it up with USNA attractive classes. He was less than inspired with his Intro to Scripture class and others, which explains his C average. He was more focused on getting on the coaches "depth" chart, which he did and will most likely be a starter. He was able to choose his spring courses and I feel he will do well with more traditional Math and Science classes. He already said he would apply again. I guess the best we could hope for now would be his strong Math/Science ACT grades get him a chance at NAPS. I hope the board can see the "whole situation"The application was good in all other aspects but the GPA was less than stellar
Define "less than stellar." What type of curriculum. A reapplicant does not have to have straight A's, but a strong academic showing in a STEM based curriculum demonstrates the ability to handle college level academics.
