I have received a nomination to the Naval Academy and the Merchant Marine Academy. I am also applying to Grove City College. A small, conservative, private Christian College. It is fairly competitive especially for their Mechanical Engineering Department. Would it be to my benefit to tell Grove City Admissions that I received a Congressional Nomination to two service academies but that I am still extremely interested in attending Grove City? Would telling them this make it seem like I don’t have a strong interest in Grove City and hurt my chances? Or, would it do the opposite and impress them with my desire to serve my country? Right now I feel like I am right on the edge of being accepted so I don’t know what to do. I would greatly appreciate any educated opinions.
