I'm a previous candidate for USNA. I got my congressional nomination and everythinbg, but was turned down at the last step. I suspect my medical had something to do with, but I'm really not to sure. Either way, I've enrolled at Michigan State University. We don't have an NROTC unit, though, so I'm currently an Army cadet/political science major. For purposes of nomination, does anyone know if MSU is an Honor School and thus able to nominate it's cadets to the academies? I've recieved word (far too late for any admissions) that I got my IB diploma. Will this have any bearing on my next application? As a polisci major, I don't have a lot of science and math courses. I've also waived my university requirement for writing and English courses. Any advice?
