February 2014. I am a former US Marine with 10 years active duty and honorable service. My Stepson is a junior in the Florida Dual enrollment program at Santa Fe College and is interested in applying for our United States Naval Academy. I’m sure you are aware of the competitiveness of the Academy and the application process. Can we begin his application now? he still needs to take his SAT etc, can he still begin the application? our senator does not do his interviewing until September, how will this effect his chances?
