I am interseted in the Naval Academy, but its so competitve i need a back up plan. But then i was looking on the website and I realized its almost a hard to get in to NROTC too. I am a freshman in high school and only have a 3.3 so far(stupid grading scale). But so far this quarter I have a 3.63. I am very involved in my church, do leadership activities, go to a college prep school,play sports, and might be joining sea cadets. My school requires at least 100 hours of community service. What happens if you dont get in NROTC, but still want to be a naval officer? What should I do to help myself? thank you.
