USMA is by far my number one school. My number two is...i dont know. If I don't find out about West Point before the deadlines at the beginning of january, I'll basically be applying to about 12 schools because I'm not sure exactly where else I'd want to go. And right there is my problem. I spent so much time working on the essays for West Point. I can't do that for other schools. Sometimes I can. If its an essay like "where do you like to get lost", I can handle it. But if the question's "why do you want to go to our school"...I've got nothing. They have ROTC. But all the schools im applying to have ROTC. So basically I have to make up a reason why that particular school is a perfect fit for me, when I know its not. Has anyone else had this problem? How do you motivate yourself to get excited for a plan B that you hope will never actually happen?
