My son got the principle nomination this past December. We were all very surprised and extremely excited once we understood what it meant. He got a rejection letter, on Friday, stating his SAT scores were the reason and that he would not be considered for even the prep academy. Is that legal or correct? We are wondering if the Naval Academy even knew he had the principle nomination. His SAT scores were what they were when they nominated him and he has heard that there are people there who have lower scores, from other mids there. Who can we talk to? The first call was to the Senator's office.
