Discussion in 'Service Academy Preparatory Schools' started by USMC1550, Nov 23, 2016.
I'm so ready for this. I can't wait to hear back on my package.
When are most NAPS awardees notified? Is it mostly in late Mar or April?
It could, and had been offered as early as in the fall, when admissions decided a candidate can use that extra year to improve in a particular area to ensure his/her success at the academy. There should be more offered up to April 15.
Will NAPS appointees receive a packet with the proper 2017-2018 paperwork when it is released or will it all be through the portal?
My sons USNA CANDIDATE/portal site says "complete pending review". Is this what all of the waiting candidates portal says?
If I don't have a nomination and am medically disqualified, is it likely I won't receive a NAPS appointment. I'm still CPR for some reason...
Med DQ = you're out.
Are you DQ from dodmerb and have something that isn't waiverable? Did USNA not give you a waiver?
Curious, last year I saw there was a Battalion trip to the Army Navy game. Is this done yearly? Are there other battalion trips?
They normally go to the Army Navy Game and take a trip to USNA. Not sure if any others or if it has changed.
Seems to me I see the NAPSters at a home football game every year.
Thank you @NavyHoops and @Capt MJ! What a fantastic experience NAPS is looking to be.
When my plebe was at NAPS, they went to UConn for the football game, the Army-Navy game, Boston, and New York.
Yep, trip to the academy in October, Army Navy Game, trip to AWP for the prep schools football game, and a few more at the end of the year. Though there are opportunities for clubs and sports to travel as well.
Handbook is on the Facebook
@USMC1150, can you put me in contact with a prior that's at NAPS with you? I am currently enlisted (reserves) and I was selected for NAPS last month, I accepted the offer and sent the three forms (police record, proof of citizenship, and body alterations form). I am somewhat unclear about how and when I will be separated/transferred from the reserves into NAPS. I contacted my admissions counselor and he just said they will send out instructions to transfer me out to my command, but he didn't say when or what those instructions are. I just want to know more about this process. A prior reservist or active duty with some information on this would be very much welcomed.
What is the indoc phase like at NAPS?
If you message me, I can probably find someone to help you!
