Is this reply a slam or what? My Son does not want to attend a civilian school. I was implying if he would break a leg or some other unforeseen circumstance arises, he would have a decent backup college to go to.
I'm not a parent but, IMO, if your child plans to attend a civilian school should he/she NOT receive an appointment . . . (emphasis added)
Of course there are other options upon not receiving an appointment - one of those options would be enlisting.
Just_A_Mom said:Well, some kids get to the academy from the enlisted ranks. Any idea how that works?
Great program but a heck of a gamble if one is enlisting primarily to go to USNA.
