    As most of you may have read in my prior posts, I had hoped NASS might have been a method to "make or break" my sons interest in the the Naval Academy.
    We received twin rejection letters today and that may likely seal the deal. I know this has little bearing on ultimately being appointed but, it will likely diminish their interest.
    Fortunately, unlike many here, there's no anguishing disappointment.
    We'll see and maybe they'll still want to apply.

    Many, many great candidates don't get into NASS. I realize it is discouraging but it is not necessarily an indicator or predictor of acceptance into USNA. The beauty of applying to a SA is that it's free (no application fee) and you can always turn it down. But, if they're not interested, then they're not interested. And that's perfectly ok.

    Please don't misunderstand. I had only hoped for NASS to help them get a true sense of what Naval Academy life would be like.
    They really aren't discouraged at all, they're OK with it. They may still apply, they may not.

    If they apply, they can request a CVW. In some ways, it presents more of what USNA is like b/c it's done during the Ac year. USNA offers CVWs to highly qualified candidates. However, like NASS, it's oversubscribed.:frown:
