I was wondering do you know if canidates that get accepted to NAPS onlly find out during rolling admission or can they find out during Early Action?.
I am not sure about Div I-AA, but for Div I-A, the NCAA frowns heavily on prep school scholarships for recruited athletes. I would suspect it is the same for USCGA. USAFA got in trouble a couple of years ago for abusing this. Present USNA guidelines are that the percentage of recruited athletes at the various prep schools cannot exceed the percentage of recruited athletes in the Academy student body as a whole.bossf51 said:I am sure you are eligible for prep or CGRIT off the alternate list. However I think you are less likely to get this kind of offer unless you are: a minority male; a female; or a recruited athlete.
I did. Quickly. 5 minutes. So the numbers may not be exact, but they are close. The official WP athletics website. men's basketball-6/20, women's basketball-4/17, baseball-3/30, football approx 70/240 (approximately 20 of 50 of those earning letters). These numbers are in line with the 20% or so at NAPS. Divide the above totals by 4 and one gets 21 per year. Double it for attrition and other sports and one is still in the neighborhood of 20% athletes for the total MAPS student body. This is also completely discounting MAPS walk-ons, which for football can be quite a few.bossf51 said:There are usually something like 200 athletes at USMAPS for example. Look at the rosters for the men's and women's basketball teams, football, baseball etc. You'll see what I mean.
Agree. While not stastically significant, I am very familiar with 7 past and present NAPSters. 1 athlete and, additionally, 1 woman. Unfortunately, none of the seven were minorities.Just_A_Mom said:About getting chosen for prep schools - I have known of several white males who are not recruited athletes at NMMI or MMI.
In fact, as far as women go, NAPS is 14% women while the USNA brigade is about 20% women and the CGA is about 30% women.
Hog, of all people, I am surprised that you are so gullible. A very quick perusal of the USAFA football website indicates that 8/20 seniors are from the AFA prep school. They don't list starters but a quick overview of the leaders in each of the statistical categories (a pretty good indicator of starters) is that about one third are from the prep school.Whistle Pig said:A friend told me that every one of this year's USAFA football team starters were prep school alums. Seems a bit extreme, but I've no reason to not believe him.
Do Div III athletes lose a year of eligibility when transferring to a Div I school?Whistle Pig said:I would doubt for Div III that it makes any difference at all.
