This is my first post on the forums, so bare with me. I became a candidate for appointment for the class of 2014 around the 6th of January of this year and my nerves are completely shot. I'm applying from college and have alot of my application packet completed, but I haven't been able to contact my BGO or received a notification from DoDMERB. Am I too late to be competitive? I'm extremely committed to getting into the USNA, but if I don't, I'll have to go through another year of college for nothing (seeing as how I have to begin again as a plebe if accepted). Do I stand a snowball's chance, or am I pretty much wasting my time?
