Just wanted to take note of all the help everyone on the forum has been for years and especially in the past few months, I really appreciate it! Unfortunately despite getting 3 nominations (congressman and 2 senators) and having a lot of encouragement about my chances from my BGO, I wasn't given an appointment for the class of 2017. At this point, I really want to reapply to Navy, seeing as I 100% want to be there. I was hoping someone could give me some insight on the chances of getting an appointment on a reapply from a college like University of Virginia (engineering program). At this point I have to make a decision on whether or not I want to pursue another program or stay on path to getting an appointment and entering the academy as part of the class of 2018. I have another opportunity that I would not be able to reapply I would have to stick with the program and never try for USNA again. I am very inclined to pursue an appointment for next year, but I fear I will get declined by USNA again, especially since a majority of the people that get in I believe get in through NAPS or being nominated through their NROTC unit. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated! Thank you! P.S. I am on Long Island and it was a very competetive year, especially with a good deal of nominations given to LOA candidates and NAPS/foundation.
