    Just curious to see the profiles of those who were appointed to USNA. If you guys don't mind, let us know some of your background. Academics (GPA, Class Rank, ACT/SAT, AP Classes, etc.), ECs, leadsership positions, etc. Also maybe location and whether or not you're district is competitive. Thanks!

    Its all about wanting it. At my crossfit gym we cannot say the C word (Can't) or be negative to others. That is because that cultivates a negative mental attitude. I have even phased out the word in my day to day life. You CAN do it. You just have to want it, and be prepared to try again and again and again.

    For me, my end goal was to be in the US military. I would've found a way...I even told my parents that if I didn't get a service academy, ROTC, OTS/OCS, then I would enlist. If I had been medically disqualified...I don't know what I would do.

    But I kept up a positive mental attitude, and I kept up with my checklist of things a candidate should be, and it showed when I interviewed. It's about being yourself, its about loving what you do, and its about loving your country.


    I AM A MIDSHIPMEN-CANDIDATE FOR 2016. I AM NOT THE SMARTEST. I AM NOT THE MOST ATHLETIC. I AM NOT THE BEST LEADER. BUT BY GOD, I AM A MIDSHIPMEN.

    Great Advice! I just wanted to add learn how to sell yourself in a way that doesn't come off as bragging or cockiness. Remember that all the people in the admissions process were young once too and the same goes for the interviews.
