I have just finished my senior year of high school, and I have wanted to join the military for a very long time now. However, my parents wanted me to finish college first, which I understand, and was complying with. However, in the middle of my senior year, I found out about the military academies (I know that sounds weird, but it never occured to me that those would exist, ha!) but by the time I had looked into it all, it was too late for me to apply for nominations. My main question is can I still apply after graduating high school? I've been on their website, and I know they accept up to the age of 23, but they seem to mainly be targeting high school juniors/seniors. So can I apply, and if so, what are my chances of being accepted? Thanks to anyone who can help me, this worries me greatly!
