    I heard from a friend of mine who just graduated from USNA that the academy sends an officer to the high school graduations of those who received appointments. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

    Chances of Getting In

    I know that these questions have been coming up a lot but I'd really like to know how competitive a candidate I will be. I am currently a junior in an extremely competitive NYC high school. AP's are not offered until junior and senior year, so by the time I graduate, I will only have completed...
