    Rejection from USNA 2022

    Waiting nervously and patiently for news

    Here comes a moment of overthinking this! Since most of the early selections probably won their slate, they most likely are very strong candidates. Then they take 150 off the top of the national pool. That is the top 150 of what is left. Safe to say you would not necessarily have to be in the...

    If one wishes to understand the clarity of the Constitution, there are a plethora of documents from that era that one can research. Federalist Papers, speeches, letters, etc. It puts the founders’ principles and ideas in context. CLARITY. Or you can just stick with MSM...

    School walkout

    Here is a post that stresses the importance of exercising a Constitutional right. But the motive behind this act is to deny a constitutional right to many others. It gets dicey when one tries to cherry pick their favorite parts of the Consitution. “...Enemies, foreign or Domestic” The...

    Chance of getting accepted to USNA?

    Consulting an admissions counselor is sound advise. I also suggest you pray about it. God knows your path better than you do. Seeking help from the Great Counselor, you will know the right answer when it is presented to you.

    Class of 2022 DIY USNA Appointment Thread
