I submitted my preliminary application a few days ago and got an email saying "Thank you for submitting a Preliminary Application to the U.S. Naval Academy. It will be reviewed, and if you qualify, you will receive a candidate packet in the mail with a candidate number and instructions on how to apply online. Good luck, and Beat Army! Admissions Office United States Naval Academy" About how long will it take to find out if I qualify and what not? Will I be notified by e-mail before receiving the hard copy packet?
