Hey everyone. Recently (about a month ago), I suffered a terrible cystic acne outbreak. Ive always had, "bad" acne, but not like this. Its gotten to the point where Im in so much pain that I have trouble sleeping and can barely concentrate on anything. This led me to transition into being homeschooled right at the start of my senior year. I started my application months before but at this point, I know I definitely won't pass the DoDMERB and I know that my appearance will not make too good of an impression on the interviewers (for the nominations and the BGO). My doctor put me on a strong dose of Accutane and claims that I should be back to normal in 3 months but then it'll be too late for everything. Plus, this transition into homeschooling after 3 years of public schooling seems like it'll flip my applications up side down. I don't know what I should do...Should I just go to a civilian college for 1 year and then try and go to the Academy. Or, should I take a gap year next year while starting the application process. What will look better, what will the USNA think of this whole fiasco? Thanks for reading.
