DS has been dreaming USNA since 7th grade NESA overnight at USNA. Application in, attended NASS and a CVW, self-expressed "calling" to Naval Service. DS did not play a school sport. However, is a black belt in TaeKwonDo, Captain of Sparring Team and 2 time state champ in sparring. I appreciate that the Admissions process is a bit of a black box. Does anyone have information if the above will get consideration of equivalence to a Varsity sport? DS has above average scores on all CFA and max or near max on 4 of 6 CFA events. Thank you to all who contribute to this forum. For us newbies it is a tremendous source of information. DS finds January a loooong way off but will be checking the mailbox daily from then. Good luck to all.
