Hello everyone, I am in an interesting situation in which I am unsure of the results of the decisions that need to be made. Let me start by explaining the situation in a simple manner: In my 10th grade HS year, I decided I wanted to apply for the Naval Academy. I was perfectly eligible, and I began to research what needed to be done in order to apply. However, during the beginning of my 11th grade year, I had a lack of common sense and gave up my dreams for the chance of being closer to my high school sweetheart (foolish, I know...). Now that I have realized my mistakes and that I still really want to achieve my goals of going to the Academy, I am really needing some opinions on whether it is too late for me or not. I am currently a senior, and will graduate in May. I have missed the deadline for the class of 2022, and cannot apply for that class. That leaves me with having to wait an entire year before I could even go, because I would have to apply for the class of 2023. If I were to begin the application process in April once they open, would I even be considered for appointment after being 1 year late? Does anybody have any advice, or ideas on what the best route to go about this is? Any information would be appreciated...thanks!
