    Hi everyone, I wanted some input on my chances of being offered a NAPS appointment.

    -I already have a nomination.
    -Four soccer Varsity letters including team captain senior year.
    -150+ volunteer hours
    -Senior class officer
    6/8 senior year classes are AP or DE
    -GPA 3.7 (last semesters GPA was a 4.25)
    Sat scores: Math 590 Writing/Reading 610
    -Member of Beta club, History club, Foreign language club, and DECA
    -Not an Eagle Scout, but spent several years in the BSA
    -Extremely determined to attend USNA

    I feel as if my SAT scores might be a little low, which is why I was thinking NAPS.

    None of know or can tell your chances based upon a dozen data points. Yes, your SAT scores are below average, but it doesn't mean you are out of the game. Bottom line, you are in the game until you get a TWE. If you have done all you can to submit your strongest application then you have done what you can.

    It says that the middle 50 percentile for English/Reading is 600-730 and for math 620-720, so I guess I'm close?

    Well since I am not going to break down stats with medians tonight, yeah close should work. It's still on the lower side. I would expect that means USNA would look heavily at your math classes, school profile, teacher recommendations too.

    I'm not sure if those are the old SAT scores or not but I got a 520 in Math and 590 in English. I'm half way through NAPS right now! Good luck.
