Naval Academy Applicant... My son has been "triple qualified" (DODMERB, Academic and Physical with nomination from MOC). When he called his Regional Officer he was told that his application was marked as a "recruited athlete". He was aware of this fact. My question is what does this mean as it relates to his application and appointment? I'm fairly sure it helps but does anyone know how much it helps or where it places his application in the whole scheme of things?
