USNA Chances

Hey guys!
New on the forum this year. I was hoping if I told a little about my application I could get some feedback regarding my chances to get into the USNA!

I am a second time applicant, currently at UNI. I received a principle nomination from one MOC, as well as receiving another MOC nomination on top of that. I passed my CFT as per my BGO's information. My college GPA is a 3.63 with 33 credits. My high school final GPA was approx. the same. In high school I took AP courses as well as dual credit English and business classes. My ACT was Verbal 27 Math 27. Earlier this year I was DQ'd because a shoulder injury but within a week I was granted a waiver (good sign from the threads I have read, considered competitive). I have worked tremendously hard to get a second opportunity at the USNA. Hoping this small amount of info is a good indicator of a BFE!

Also, I am Puerto Rican (wondering if the ethnicity would matter??)
The principal is certainly a huge get, but you still have to wonder about being academically qualified. The ACTs would be on the lower end.

You have demonstrated commitment overall and success at the college level (assuming those course line up with Plebe courses

Also the waiver is a positive as they don't ask for those for no reason

Your ethnicity shouldn't make a difference- some will argue that it will.

Good luck
