Good evening, Starting off, here's a quick summary for you. I attended an International Baccalaureate school and obtained that diploma in 2012. I then went to Western Michigan University for the 2012-2013 school year. While there, I was in AFROTC and was able to complete the pledge process for the Arnold Air Society. I applied during the fall to go to USNA. I had a friend attend there straight out of high school in the class of 2016. He's told me quite a bit of inside stuff over the year but I'm still very nervous. I was offered an appointment the end of March and I was honestly shocked. I was in awe for a about a week, and very ecstatic. It was a difficult goodbye from all my friends at Western and will be for my family at home. I have less than a month until I-Day. I've read all over the forum on what to expect, but I do not feel very confident going in. I know a lot of drill from AFROTC but don't know what to expect. I am trying to keep up with working out at least and hour and a half daily, but I developed shin splints two months ago and they have not gone away. I am in physical therapy right now. I haven't run in over a month now but I do at least 1/2 hour on the bike at the gym for cardio mixed with P90x or weights on a day to day basis. I put pushups and situps in my exercise routine here and there as well, just depends on the day. I am just wondering how my situation sounds right now. I will post more questions as I think of them until I-Day. P.S. How do I go about validating classes because I have taken a year's worth of classes at Western Michigan University and IB courses as well? P.S.S. I cannot express how much I want to be a Naval Aviator. Getting a pilot's slot is a huge dream of mine and at USNA I hope it's possible. My friend who is there says that he believes PRK Corrective Eye Surgery can happen to you in your 3/C year. Is this true? My eyes are not 20/20. They're 20/70, so I need a surgery to fly I think. Just curious how the Academy will go about that.
