Hi everyone... USNA is definitley high on my college list, quite possibly my first choice. Before I make a decision, however, I have a few questions about the student life at the Academy. For one thing, what are the dorms like? I know Bancroft Hall is co-ed, but are floors separated into genders or what? And what is the deal with dating? Is it allowed? Throughout all four years? Also, how often will I get to go home and visit my family? Will I have time to have fun and hang out with friends or no? I would like to have some kind of social life, not necessarily parties every night but just get the chance to socialize and have fun. And what about going out into the city? I heard it was different for different midshipmen classes, but if someone could expand that would be great. Thanks!
