Never say never... I applied to USNA (albeit 4 times) and went straight there with no prep school and a 1.96 HS GPA. Gaijin went to NAPS I believe, so he can probably fill you in on what goes on at NAPS. Here's how it works: Apply to the Naval Academy. That's it, the Admissions Board determines if you go to the Naval Academy, NAPS or a Foundation School. You can't apply to any of them on your own.Hi Im a senior considering my college options theres no way i would ever get in to the USNA directly. do any off you know about the USNA prep school? how does one apply? what goes on there? does going assure a place at the academy?
You are.Also, I'm pretty sure that at this point NAPS is only for varsity athletes, prior enlisted, and minorities - but I could be wrong on this point.
One of the English professors did an article exactly about that:Also, I'm pretty sure that at this point NAPS is only for varsity athletes, prior enlisted, and minorities - but I could be wrong on this point.
Makes me wish I had actually used my 1/8th African American and selected minority status on my application to USNA.One of the English professors did an article exactly about that:

I thought (before deductions) it was 250. I stand corrected.250 as a plebe? That's a bunch of crap! I got $100/ month last year and I'm a youngster and get $200/month now... where did you pull out $250?
Edit: I see you're talking about before deductions... I think before deductions, it's like $864/ month... it's supposed to be like 30% or 35% of O-1 Pay... can't remember the exact %.
You need a NOMINATION from a Senator, Congressman, Secretary of the Navy, President, or Vice President. President is reserved for military dependents I believe, Senator/Congressman/Vice President are competitive. SecNav Nominations are for prior enlisted guys.do you need to be appointed by a senator/congressmen to get into USNA or NAPS?
Contact your local senator/congressmen's office and ask them. They each do it differently, but they receive a ton of applicants, so expect almost a full blown applicaiton + interview with them.how do you go about geting one?
Yup, I'm not sure but I think it's only a handful (or less) per.are senator/congressmen limited giving them?
Not necessarily too late to be competitive, but the senators/congressman have probably already made the first cut AT LEAST to who they're going to nominate. You should have been in the running a bit earlier with them...btw i said i probably wouldnt get in because is november and the application is due in january i figure it to late to be competive now.
