Hi Everyone! I am currently a 2nd Class Midshipman at USNA (rising junior)! I joined the forum because my mother constantly asks me for the answers to the questions she reads on here. I'm a female mid from Georgia, a member of NAPS class of 2008 and a proud member of the mighty class of 2012!!!! I am more than willing to answer any questions about the academy. I'm pretty sure I have an understanding on how things work by now, but I still have so much to learn. I promise not to be cynical, but I won't sugar coat my answers either. However, all my answers will come from my own personal experience or experiences that I have seen firsthand (everyone's academy experience is different). If you are a candidate, good luck and stay the course! If you are a parent, believe me your child is fine and in good hands. GO NAVY, BEAT ARMY!
