    Hey everyone! I'm a rising 8th grader in So Cal, and I've wanted to go to the Naval Academy since 5th grade. I've been to the USNA Swim Camp four times, and I really enjoyed being at the academy. I've already signed up with USNA, USAFA and WP for information in emails from now until I apply as a prospective candidate.

    I look forward to learning alot from everyone on this forum.

    Thanks,

    Mary

    So hey, how did you figure out you wanted USNA since 5th grade? Is that when you started your swim camps?

    Hi Bill-

    Thanks for the welcome! This board looks great, and I look forward to relying on it for the next few years.

    In 5th grade, I saw an advertisement in USA Swimming for the USNA Swim Camp. At the time, I wanted to go into the service, but had no preference of which branch of the service I wanted to be in. I've really enjoyed my four visits to the Naval Academy, and have made friends with one of the Mids from my area. She is a graduate of the high school I want to attend after I finish 8th grade. Also, my uncle is a Colonel in the Marine Corps, my aunt is a Captain in the Navy and my grandfather was a Seabee during the Korean war.

    I realize that I might change my mind, but for right now,.... GO NAVY!!!!!

    Best of luck to you in your application process this year!
