Well, I am an American citizen by birth, but after talking to me for a minute people notice my accent and believe me when I say I'm from Lithuania (haha). Here's some info: *I want to minor in Russian at USNA. *I am fluent in Lithuanian. *I speak with a somewhat noticeable accent. *Dad was enlisted (E-9) in Soviet Navy, born in Soviet Lithuania. *Stepmom was born in Soviet Russia. Technically, I am a white male, but how would this affect my application? I already know a little Russian, and I could do extremely well in a Russian class. I want to go into aviation or intell, and Russian would be good for intell, correct? I was told the background check would take longer, but how else would it change everything? Is any of this significant, or not very important?
