Hello, DD is a candidate for USNA class of 2020. Application is complete, just waiting for nomination/appointment (very hopeful!). She has no interest in ROTC or the typical college route, but her plan if she's not offered an appointment is to enlist in the Navy, an to reapply to USNA next year. The local recruiter wants her to proceed with the enlistment process now, saying that the enlistment is simply dropped if she attends USNA. But she's worried that it could hurt her chances at USNA if she proceeds. She's a senior, graduates this spring. Any thoughts on starting enlistment? Should she wait until she knows from USNA?
