    Will my grades hurt my application?

    Don't think about those grades right now. Your grades look good from what I see. Just keep it up, do better if you can. Focus on your weaknesses and strengthen your strengths!

    Transferring to the Naval Academy

    This is true, however, it is very competitive to get in. About 40-50+ mids take their week-long screener, and they only offer 2-3 spots in the team.

    Annapolis Hotel Options

    I will be at Annapolis around 22 or 21 of June for Plebe Summer. I am looking for any cheap hotels that are near Naval Academy. My parents are coming with me, so we're probably looking at 2 beds in one room or two rooms with single beds. I am on a budget, so anything will be fine. Side Note...

    If I don't know, should I assume?

    I just don't think it's fine by 'only' being positive on the forums. The forums is for helping and falsifying someone's application and not being truthful to them can later hurt them in the process. I'm not trying to bring down anyone on this forum. I'm just saying that he's not that 'guy' you...
