    So I got the TWE today. Not a huge deal, all doors have not been shut. This just allows me to get stronger and more fit and get more education in before possibly attending. The thing is, I am putting myself through college. I am not allowing my parents to pay for me. I will be attending a Community College to complete prereqs for a four year, then I would transfer to OSU, Georgia Tech, Purdue, etc. It makes no economical sense to go to a four year for the first two years for me. This is my ultimate plan if I don't get accepted next year. Does anyone have any experience applying to USNA from CC? How much of a negative is that? Honestly, the classes will be more difficult and more in depth than a high school class, so it can't be too much of a negative. I don't see why it is a negative really, just because it is CC doesn't mean the classes are easier, etc. I will also retake SATs, hold a job, compete in Powerlifting, and volunteer. Anything else that would be recommended for preparing?

    Losttime, you are absolutely right all is not lost and this is not end to your quest to become an officer. Let USNA know when you reapply that your choice for Community College at this point is strictly a financial one, you are in essence supporting yourself. You will be fine.

    Join ROTC if possible

    If you can join a cross-town ROTC unit, even if not N-ROTC, do it. It can't hurt and shows your commitment to serving.

    Oh - and I like the attitude. This is a bump, not a dead-end.:thumb:
