    I haven't given up the ship yet, but my dad (USNA '83) has started discussing more about the alternative plans I've set up, and with each passing week my personal morale is beginning to drop. My district is very competitive, and it's clear now that I wasn't my congressman's principal nominee...

    So today during my last wrestling practice I broke my Fibula. So if I get accepted to USNA should I inform them about the condition? And could this result in my appointment being taken away? I really hope not and I hope that under candidates out there do not recieve my misfortune.
