Hello all! I recently received a congressional nomination to KP. I have always viewed KP as the lesser known SA which drove my interests at first, and now that I have the nomination I have been looking at KP as my top college for the past week. Without a doubt I want to attend this academy if fortunate enough to possibly be accepted. However at this point in my life I am seeking a commission in the military as I have always wanted to serve. I was wondering if anyone could clear the commitment up for me. I understand that upon graduation you receive a naval reserve commission and 3rd Mate license from the USCG and with these you can either go into the civilian workforce or get a commission. The question I have is what are the chances of being able to become an ensign in the USCG/USN after college?
