I'm a high school junior who joined Sea Cadets this past January because I felt it could provide me with a better look at navy life and also because I felt it would look favorable on my application. However, because of Sea Cadets, I have not had time to sit down and study, fulfill my duties as a Key Club officer by attending community service events regularly, as well as other things. I am worried because not only does Sea Cadets force me to give up a lot of my other extracurriculars and study time, but even within Sea Cadets, I'm a new cadet and thus, I'm not sure if being in the program for only a short amount of time will look favorable on my application. Because of extraordinary amount of time I'm required to spend at Sea Cadets, it has come to the point where I don't really enjoy it as much as I did when I first started. Plus my LPO (Leading Petty Officer) punishes us physically, and I'm getting tired of the abuse (I don't even think it's legal.) Furthermore, I feel that I could improve my leadership skills a lot more within my other extracurriculars while better handling my studying. Even still, I'm not sure if quitting the program so abruptly will make me look unfavorable or not, but I am being tempted to quit so as to focus on my other priorities. What should I do?
