    I am 17 years old and will literally do everything to get to the naval academy. However, when i was 14 i got introuble with the local police for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. they had to bring me in and what not and i went home with my parents. they said since i was a minor it would be erased when i turn eighteen. Am i not going to be allowed into the academy if i were to apply?

    HP,
    Take a deep breath. You are probably fine, but as with all things including medical, grades, sports, ECA's etc it is the whole person they are considering. I doubt any one item would knock you out if the rest of the package is outstanding. Also, if you can show that this bad event lead you to change your friends, environment, work habits or something like that for the better- you can turn this negative into a plus for your overall presentation. Do well in school. Learn about the Academy. Have options including ROTC. I doubt this is anything but a minor blip.
    Good Luck!

    Hockeypunk,

    As jscam87 states "have options." In addition to the Naval Academy, I encourage you to check out the Senior Military Colleges of the US like Norwich University (that is where I graduated from) as well as the state maritime academies.

    There are lots of options for you - if you seek them out!

    Good Luck,

    Fuji
