I saw this on the Naval Academy forum and wanted to share it with everyone here. On a difficult day for many, best of luck with a revised course heading, new adventures and new ports of call. Fair winds and following seas.There's an old sailor motto that says, "You can't adjust the wind but you can adjust your sails." The admissions process to the academy or any other highly selective school is simply a numbers game. Everyone who got this far is highly qualified, but only a certain number can be appointed. There's no reason to fall into a dark hole of despair or to doubt your accomplishments or abilities. Chin up, and get excited about plan B! What are your plans dausthemouse?
