Just_A_Mom said:Hopefully, a Napster or parent of a recent Napster can comment more on the educational experience of it.
I would argue that the two weeks of NAPS indoc is not as intense as the six weeks of plebe summer. However, for NAPSters who have experienced NAPS indoc, a year of organized physical fitness with others who will be experiencing the same challenges, and even just sitting around the barracks discussing "sea stories" and rumors of plebe summer, will be, as Lesya25 surmises, much better prepared for the Academy than those coming straight from high school.Dukota said:He said plebe summer was a breeze compaired to indoc at Naps.

You have been there. I haven't. So I reluctantly have to agree.Zaphod said:I would disagree. When I went through, NAPS Indoc made Plebe Summer look like a joke.
USNA69 said:The fact that a higher percentage of midshipmen resign during plebe summer than NAPSters during Indoc could also possibly be used to support my position.
Zaphod said:NAPS '87 had fewer than 50 graduate from USNA out of an original NAPS class of around 300.
Zaphod said:My NAPS Indoc was so intense mentally and physically that I went through Plebe Summer pretty easily. How much of that had to do with the remaining 9 months at NAPS getting ready for it can be debated, but on the whole, NAPSters have found Plebe Summer to be much easier than NAPS Indoc.
