I read a post from a year or two ago (I wish I could find it again to link for you) that the USNA usually has about 1200+ per class and that the candidate numbers consist of around 700+ that are either recruited athletes or female or diversity candidates; and that about 500+ are caucasian males (but not recruited athletes). Are these numbers fairly accurate? If accurate, it makes me wonder what the true application rate/acceptance rate is for caucasian males who are not recruited athletes? Am I correct to assume that it is lower than the USNA published acceptance rate? I am proud of my DS for making it this far in the process no matter what happens….and he should be proud of his accomplishment too. He is competing against the best of the best.
