Well, 5 years ago the girl that was first in her class fresh-junior year and a minority was accepted to USNA. Last year my friend who was top 10% and a very athletic minority was accepted to NAPS. They both got 31 on the ACT. My grades are a lot better than his, but I'm not a minority and I'm not on as many varsity sports. How many students have to go to USNA from my school to give me an advantage? I heard that if it's a lot then it can help, but 2 doesn't seem like a lot.
