    I'm filling out my Summer Seminar recruitment application and I got to the part about Navy Athletics and I'm drawing up blanks. I'm a varsity wrestler and really like the sport, but I don't think I'm good enough to wrestle in Navy's great program. Should I just fill in to be considered for recruitment or forget about it? And if I say no on the questionnaire and get better by Plebe Summer, would I be able to try out?

    Yes, I believe all of the Varsity sports give you an opportunity to try out during Plebe Summer.

    Are you interested in wrestling? One never knows what a team needs. If you are interested, then for sure indicate your interested and let the Coach’s decide. That’s what I would suggest. Good luck!!

    Good advice from justdoit19 above.
    It's up to you. It won't help or hurt your chances at anything (NASS, CVW, Application, etc.) if that's what you're really thinking.

    It has also been mentioned in several prior threads that if you are not being actively recruited by a number of other colleges, it is unlikely you will be a top recruit for USNA. Colleges know the expected performance level of the h.s. athletes they are recruiting. SS is less about recruiting and more of a sales pitch for those not otherwise familiar with USNA.

    Yeah I don't fit that criteria. Thanks for the insight though

    I was filling my summer seminar application and my school was not on their list. I’ve contacted them twice and still have no response. Anybody else having a hard time contacting admissions?

    There is a set of instructions on the steps to follow to locate your h.s. (it's at the end of the section on h.s.). If you've tried all those things, it says to email Admissions and provides an email address. If you've done that, suggest you wait a bit . . . this is their "busy season" and a few days won't make any difference in your NASS application.
