I used this thread a lot as a USNA hopeful, and now as a current plebe at the academy, I'm willing to take a few questions as to my experiences and, well, whatever else you might want to know. I will remain completely anonymous. However, a little background information might be useful... I had a 4.4 overall GPA in high school and a 34 on the ACT Came from a very competitive congressional district. Got the principal nomination for my Congressman, but was rejected by senators. Did not receive LOA. If you have any question at all, shoot.
