A little intro about me: My name is Meghan and I'm from a small town along the Delaware River. I attended West Point's SLS in 2008! Applied to west point but wasn't granted a waiver for vision. After wanting to go to West Point for about 10 years by dreams needed to shift because after all it my goal is to be a commisioned officer in the U.S Army. About 15 minutes after being hysterical because my dreams were "ruined" I applied to the Merchant Marine Academy and Coast Guard Academy. Out of the two I seemed to have been more partial to the CGA. The only reason I visited the Merchant Marine Academy was a call from the Volleyball coach there. As soon as I started on my overnight visit it felt comfortable to me. I loved the academy. Looks like I'll be qualified both academically and physically and once again will be waiting on a waiver. Hopefully the waivor will let my dreams continue. I think this might be the path I was suppose to take. Thinking that maybe everything does happen for a reason. Trying to stay optomistic because from here on out its all in the hands of the academy.
