    I got an offer of appointment to USMA and USNA. However, I received USNA first and was so overjoyed, I accepted it right on the spot. I didn't think that I would receive an offer from USMA but I got one 6 days after receiving USNA's. That's when I decided to really think about it and consider which academy fits my desires more for commissioning. I finally decided USMA so should I email USNA letting them know I have changed my mind? What is the proper way of informing the academies? My 7th semester is also a little weak compared to my other semesters, so is there a possibility that USMA might not want me anymore? I already sent in my 7th semester to USMA a couple weeks ago and nothing happened. I got all A's and two C's (in AP Physics 2 and AP Calc BC). Any advice would be appreciated?

    The grades will be fine. Stay solid this last semester though.

    If you are 100% certain on USMA then I think emailing is acceptable notice. Be thoughtful and respectful, but be sure to end with, GO ARMY!! BEAT NAVY!!

    A few year's ago, we had a friend decline USNA. They had to sign the back of the appointment, declining it, and mail it back.
    Does USNA still require you to return the appointment?

    As long as you notify USNA, because someone is waiting anxiously for your seat! Haha
