I am a college reapplicant to USNA after almost being admitted to NAPS (They told me I was only denied because there were a lot less slots than they anticipated) and I am going to VT and joining the Corps of Cadets. I am planning my course of action for reapplying to USNA and I have been wondering how open I should be. I definitely know I need to tell my advisor and my professors so they can complete necessary parts of the application, but what about my commanding officer (I would need his/her recommendation to potentially get a nom) and my peers? I don't want to rub anyone the wrong way but I also want to not let it stand the way of getting an appointment. Also, how soon should I tell my professors and CO after meeting them? I don't want it to look like I am taking VT for granted and am just using the school to get into USNA. If anyone has any advice or prior experience, please help me out!
