Back in January, I received an appointment to USNA. As expected I was in shock at first, then after I came back down to earth and after much personal deliberation, I have decided to accept the offer of appointment. I am certainly enthused that I have been appointed, and i'm also completely sure about accepting the offer, however I have a question. Is it ok to go into USNA with a determination to succeed, but also somewhat reserved attitude? I am completely willing to put in all the hard work, and have the desire to be a Naval officer, however I am not quite as "Gung Ho" as many other people I see on here. I am hoping some current and former Midshipmen could comment on this. Have you been or seen people who don't go in completely gung ho about USNA succeed and thrive?
