Can anyone explain why the Naval Academy does not report on the candidates portal or even consider the writing scores from the SAT test? Below are quotes taken directly from the USNA admissions site inside the academic catalog tab. Because the USNA program emphasizes mathematics, science, engineering and writing, your school preparation should include the following: English: four years of course work in English with a special emphasis on the study and practice of effective writing. Your application will be strengthened if, in addition to the above, you have had: English: additional courses in English and American literature as well as courses in other areas that emphasize writing. I was just curious if anyone knows.
