When I attended the 2015 USNA NESA STEM Jamboree last week with my Boy Scout troop, my growing interest for the Naval Academy soared from where it had been originally with this exciting exposure to the campus and the Brigade. At a prospective candidate seminar with a few Midshipmen and Blue-and-Gold officers, eighth graders, freshmen, and sophomores were urged to apply to the USNA STEM Program for 2015. Knowing that applications had opened on the 5th and it was the 18th of January, I applied as soon as possible, hoping that my still-considerably-early application could aid in my admission. First, can anyone tell me if they have already been accepted? Thank you. Second, I would appreciate if someone could chance me for this program: I am currently a white freshman in high school in suburban New Jersey I attend a competitive high school with a prominent focus on science After taking my first PSAT, I received a 195 combined (70 W, 70 CR, 55 Math) I have taken Honors English since 7th grade (E7, E8, E9) I have taken Honors pre-algebra and combined algebra (I & II) My UWGPA is a 3.9 I have participated in 3+ club, intramural, or other program sports I have participated in 2 Varsity sports (XC and winter track, gaining a letter in XC) I have been in student government, class council, HOSA, Science club, science Olympiad, community service, am a Life Scout in Boy Scouts, participate in band, chorus, marching band, and indoor drumline Thank you to anyone who reads this.
