    Other Service Academy Appointment

    Got a DD here who really wants USNA. Applied to the other academies, and is hearing some positive things back from some of them regarding their respective applications, but no word on USNA. So I got a question; if DD gets an appointment to "X" Academy, is it a good idea to tell USNA about it, in...

    Sea Year with Coast Guard?

    Is it possible for a midshipman to participate in sea-year or at least part of sea-year aboard a U.S. Coast Guard vessel? I have heard that it is possible to do so with the U.S. Navy, so perhaps it is possible with the Coast Guard? How might this work either way?

    Can a visit to USMMA help boost my chances of admission/receiving an appointment?

    I am wondering if it is beneficial to my application if I can go visit now (and demonstrate showing an interest), or should I sit tight (and not miss school and take an expensive trip) and let the process play out. Thanks for any thoughts or advice!
