Hello everyone, I am Firstie in good standing selected for an internal scholarship that required me to early select submarines but offered grad school at NPS as an incentive. I came to the naval academy to be a pilot, the only thing I've every really wanted in life. I was under a lot of peer and faculty pressure to put paperwork in that would lead to the scholarship even though I was under the impression that I was not really competitive for it. Murphy's law, I was selected and forced to interview with the four star in charge of Naval Nuclear Reactors... I've done my interview and was pretty content with submarines until I was given an aviation cruise that is concluding this week. Needless to say I have found my niche in life and don't want to leave the squadron. Does anyone know how difficult it is to get out of an Nuclear contract once you have already interviewed? I've heard of kids from the academy getting out of it but for reasons that usually pertain to a lot of drinking and or partying. Although I could pursue these options I feel that this would not lead to an aviation slot which is something I know I coud have if I got out of my submarine contract... any ideas?
