I’ve had my heart set on going to USNA since I was in 8th grade. But following the initial excitement that I had when I first read my acceptance email, I experienced extreme hesitation and doubts about attending. I’m just looking for some advice from anyone—current mids, applicants, parents, and alums—about whether I should accept the appointment. What have your experiences been with the Naval Academy? Are these sudden reservations a sign that the academy not be right for me? Any advice or past experiences are appreciated.
