I am currently a freshman in college and I am seeking the academy life. After almost a month in college I have realized that I want a more structured life. For the past two weeks of so I have been working on my application to USMMA. I applied to USNA '22 but did not receive an appointment. I like to think I was close because I received nominations from two senators and one congressman. Once I did not get in I immediately set my eyes on NROTC. I got into the college program but after two weeks of doing I had to leave the unit because of the freshman class requirement at my school. Since then I have been seriously looking into USMMA. The opportunities there are amazing, it is everything I want in a college education. I am even talking to the coach about playing soccer there. I guess my question is how will admissions look at a transfer student like me, who meets the average gpa and sat scores of accepted students, and has service academy/nomination/NROTC background. I know at the naval academy they look in favor upon applicants from college who applied and were rejected from service academies in the past.
