    Hi everyone! I am Sam from NJ. I am a senior and have applied to USMMA, USNA, USCGA, and USAFA, as well as the AFROTC and NROTC scholarships. So far I have been accepted to USCGA and I received both ROTC scholarships, but I was denied by USMMA. All is well though. Hoping to get a few questions answered as I wait for the other 2 so I can make the best decision possible!

    What do you want to do in the military?

    After the military?

    What is your planned major?

    Do you play any sports and will you continue those at the academy/college you choose?

    Why not Army/West Point?

    Why do you think you were denied an appt by KP?

    What do you want to do in the military?

    Probably something to do with flight, whether its an engineer or a pilot I do not know yet. Still deciding.

    After the military?

    Continue flying for a bit, probably commercially and then possibly go into politics.

    What is your planned major?

    It depends where I go. For any academy, it will either be government or aeronautical engineering. If I go to Embry-Riddle (my ROTC school) it will be Aeronautical Science and Air Traffic Management.

    Do you play any sports and will you continue those at the academy/college you choose?

    I play lacrosse and basketball, if I do ROTC or CGA I will continue, the other schools are D1, so it would be tough to play.

    Why not Army/West Point?

    I was never fully interested in the Army lifestyle. West Point didn't seem to be the way to go for me, and AROTC is not offered at Embry-Riddle. When it came down to picking schools for nominations, USMA didn't fit.

    Why do you think you were denied an appt by KP?

    I ran out of nomination slots, so I had to go my final Senator for this one. I did not receive the nomination, which does not fully surprise me, considering I was going up against every candidate in New Jersey. Aside from that, I am not really sure, I received acceptance to CGA before MMA, so I thought I would be good with it. It's a bit sad, but I think it's for the best someone else go there.
