If you're a junior who is extremely interested in competing for an appointment to the Naval Academy like me, you know that the NASS application opened just a few days ago. Quoting from the Summer Seminar site, "PLEASE NOTE: The application is NOT first come, first served. Please gather all of the required information before applying. Applications are now open." I am taking the SAT again on January 21st, and was planning on waiting until I got my scores back in February to use on my application. However, my cousin who went to NASS last year and received his nomination to West Point last November told me that the sooner you get in your application, the better chance you have in getting into Summer Seminar. I received a 1420/1600 when I took the SAT last June, but on my last PSAT I earned a 1470/1520 and so am hoping to score closer to 1500 on my next SAT. What is the veracity of my cousin's statement, and what would you all recommend I do? Thanks so much for your input.
