I don't think they necessarily recruit. However, I am sure that many who have never previously considered USNA, through word of mouth begin to consider it. Also the nature of the profile of the nuclear power recruit lends itself to a candidate also meeting USNA admissions requirements. Successful progress in nuclear power school also proves an ability to enter the Academy directly and succeed academically. I would say that an equal package in another career path, while not necessarily being a negative, might perhaps cause an appointment via NAPS in lieu of direct, but not necessarily a lesser chance.
