I have a general question. I have read about cynicism in midshipmen at USNA and the dark periods at USNA. I know of two applicants who had appointments to USNA who, after their candidate visits turned their appointments down. I know USNA, USMMA and USCG were listed in Princeton review's top ten least unhappiest students. There is an ebook titled: Organizational Cynicism at the United States Naval Academy: An Exploratory Study. http://www.amazon.com/Organizational-Cynicism-United-Academy-ebook/dp/B007N6N2I6 My question is: is WP the same with the same levels of cynicism as other S.As or is there a difference?
