DS is fortunate to have received appointments to CGA Scholars program and USNA Foundation for 2014-2015. All the adults that are close to him have recommended CGA, but he has his heart set on USNA. We're not sure he will be successful at USNA academically or athletically. If he chooses the Foundation option, he knows he will have to work harder than he has ever even conceived, but he says he's up for it. He wants to fly Navy. Is this a time to let the DS make his own decision or mandate that he goes CGA? I think I know the answer but interested in your feedback.
