New to forum and I wanted to know if it is possible to commision into the navy after attending USMA. For some background, I want to go into nuclear engineering, therefore I find that I would have a better time serving on a submarine. I know it sounds selfish, but in the end I will be serving no matter what branch. Obviously, some are going to ask why I don't just go to USNA, but I didn't get a nomination, and I would not decline West Point. So does anyone know if you can directly enter the navy after USMA, or how hard it would be to transfer after your first five years?
