If a kid has good academics, good leadership and extracurriculars but has one serious blemish on their record do they still have a chance of getting into any of the acadamies? The blemish was a result of drinking alcohol at a JROTC drill meet. The punishment was 5 day suspension from school, loss of JROTC rank and company commander position, removal from JROTC rifle team. This was an isolated incident but obviosly showed very poor judgement. Does the kid still have a chance or did he throw it away? He is a high school junior.
