I am a plebe at the naval academy, and I am currently planning on dropping immediately upon returning after Christmas Leave. While I appreciate all input, I am certain this isn't simply a result of the post-break blues. I knew on I-day that this was not the place for me. I stayed through the semester to give it a chance and I planned on talking to my parents about my decision to leave face to face over winter break. Now that I have talked to them I have decided to leave. Ive already applied to a good school and I have a plan for life after the academy. My big question is can I DOR without returning after break? Can they just send me the paper work to fill out? It would save me a lot of time and money in air travel.
