Hello, I am currently a Third Class Midshipman at the Naval Academy and I am contemplating whether or not to sign my 2 for 7. I thought it over a lot so far this year and I want to be able to make the best informed decision when the times comes in August. Right now I am leaning towards not signing because I don't believe the Naval Academy is a good fit for my personality and academic ambitions. I actually asked about leaving at the end of plebe year, but my company officer urged me to stick it out through youngster year. Honestly, not a whole lot changed for me and I have applied to another college and have been accepted for next fall. This is a really painful decision for me to make as I have a lot of great friends here and a there are a lot of great opportunities. On the other hand, I really dread going to most of my classes and I know I would enjoy my academic program at the other college much better. I can't say I've been at all looking forward to living the cloistered academy lifestyle for another two years and doing another five after that in the Fleet. There are certain communities which i find rather appealing but others make me cringe at the idea could be stuck there for five years. I am especially looking for advice from people who were very skeptical of signing the 2 for 7 and what decisions they made. Did you sign it and end up being very glad you did? Did you sign and realize it wasn't the right call? Did you leave instead of signing and regret it? Did you leave and feel better once you did? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
