Overall? The NAPSter, of course. He has to go through both.
Unless things have changed, the answer is "no" since you will receive a SECNAV nomination by virtue of being in the Navy already. In my case, I applied to my Congresscritters anyway (didn't know about SECNAV) and got my Representative's.burningice109 said:After going through NAPS do you have to apply or get nominated in order to move on and go to the Naval Academy?
Don't know for sure, but I would assume so.Also does the same policy applie for the USMAPs in order to get into the USMA?
Like zap said, you are eligible for a SecNav. However, they will insist that you reapply for the congressional noms from your district and for the VP nomination. Again, the Academy will utilize whichever is necessary to maximize the quality of the entering class.burningice109 said:After going through NAPS do you have to apply or get nominated in order to move on and go to the Naval Academy?

It is limited to approximately 20 midshipmen per year, usually the top midshipman in each of selected departments. The Academy pays tuition only equivalent to that for UMd. Any additional tuition, books, transportation, fees, etc. are out of pocket for the midshipman.Whistle Pig said:69 ... do you have any idea how many annually are in position to do the VGEP? Does the USN pay for that also? Does it add to minimal service requirement?
