Daughter is applying to both USMA and USNA for admission to Class of 2016. She attends high school in NJ, which finishes in latter part of June. Because of time out of school to attend West Point and Navy SLS, followed by NJ Girl's State week after school gets out. she won't be taking her Junior year finals till end of June, and, with teachers gone for summer, likely won't have second semester grades on her transcript until after sschool resumes in the fall.
We're of the impression that, with the rolling admissions policy at both academies, the sooner there is a completed application package to look at, the better. When do the academies begin looking at application packages? If the spring grades aren't available till early September, is that likely to be a setback? Also, recognizing that requirements for nomination applications vary among members of Congress and Senators, is the anticipated delay in receiving grades likely to delay that process? Thanks
