Before I start, I want to thank everyone who keeps this forum working, it has helped me through my whole process and even though I was rejected from USNA, I am really excited to be going to USMA. I have noticed that most friends from the summer seminars that I attended at Navy and Air Force have for the most part got into at least one academy. If they choose that the academy is where they want to go they at least got one appointment. Some of my friends also learn from summer seminar that it isn't where they want to go and don't apply. What I am really trying to express is that if you know that you want to go to an Academy, apply for all of them. My number one was navy and I didn't get in but I did get an appointment to USAFA and USMA. Most friends that wanted navy also didn't get it but they applied to others and got in. Also from summer seminar, soak in as much info as you can about the academy and make sure that is where you want to go and spend the next years of your life at. If you don't get selected for summer seminar, don't be discouraged. I have many friends that didn't get in to summer seminar and are there now. Take this info and keep it in the back of your mind throughout this summer and your senior year of high school. Good luck to you all!
