Ok. So I was thinking that if I am not offered an appointment to USNA, what I should do as a back up plan. I know I want to go to the Naval Academy and I'd do anything to get there. I am applying for an NROTC scholarship, but I have looked at Virginia Military Institute and Norwich Military Academy as well. If I got to VMI or NWA, is it easier to reapply to USNA, given that I get very good grades and show that this something that I really want?
