To the Class of 2014: As many of the LOAs and TWEs have been sent out, the time for 2015 to begin applying is looming on the horizon. What advice do you have for us regarding our relationship with our BGO, the application itself, NASS (I'm sure many of you attended), things you regret, things you did well, and anything else you would tell someone who is about to begin the application process. Why USNA and not NROTC? Is anyone out there planning on reapplying? To the Class of 2013: What advice do you have regarding Plebe Year? I've heard it's the hardest of all four years. What was the transition like? What do you wish you could have done better? What have you done particularly well in, and why? How do you recommend we prepare for Plebe Summer and Plebe Year? What is it about you that landed you a spot at USNA? Why did you go with USNA and not ROTC? What would you tell someone who is only a few months away from I-Day (class of 2014 for example!) To anyone else: I have addressed these two classes simply because they have most recently gone through these processes. Any input would be GREATLY appreciated by myself and any other 2015 hopeful!
