    Just tell me why in 25 words or less, why you want it and I will mail it to you.

    My DS got into the USMMA so will pass this on to someone who can better use this $19.95 how to. I will even pay the shipping if you are in the US.

    Respond to this thread and the entry with the most positive likes will get it! Two week timeline for responses.

    Good luck!

    I would be very grateful to receive this book since I've always wanted to get into the academy. I'm trying hard in school to do so.

    I'm not applying to USMMA but you can use USPS Media Mail. It is perfect for books and has a super cheap per pound rate.

    For the last 6 months or so I have been interested in becoming a marine officer and recently visited the Naval Academy. I fell in love with it and now I’m doing everything I possibly can in order to achieve this dream of mine.

    I want to be an officer in the Marines to change people's lives. USNA is the first step to achieving that goal.

    I’m trying to go to USNA and ultimately become a naval aviator. If you’ve seen Top Gun then I need not say more

    There are underclassmen at my school looking to apply to SA's. I'd love to share as much concise knowledge as possible from what I've learned.

    DD made it without any Book Help. Follow the application instructions. You don't need a book.

    I'll play -- Please send and I will review and provide a critique on accuracy.

    Seriously, looks like the book was written by a retired Air Force Colonel, and USAFA graduate who has established a niche' writing books about Service Academies. While not doubt she has the researched the book, it is no substitute for the advise given here frequently -- READ the USNA.EDU Admission site thoroughly, including all drop downs, linkes, etc. (Hat Tip CAPT MJ!). That is all you really need to know, and anything else (including what is posted here) is simply Gouge. Gouge is only as good as the source, and many have learned the hard truth that you can live and die by the Gouge.

    The two weeks aren't over yet. I'd say there's going to be an influx of people responding seeing as it was bumped up to the top of the page. Hopefully someone will see it and cast the tie-breaking vote.
    Going once? Going twice? Going.....

    I read the thread title and thought that there was a hostage situation.

    Relieved that this book is not being held against its will.

    I'm mentoring high schoolers who want to go to college. It's a great way to introduce them to The Service, The Site and The Academies.
