My son has wanted to attend USNA since he was 8 when he visited Annapolis for the first time. He has visited Annapolis several times since including sports camps and NASS. He also attended USAFA summer seminar this year. He was accepted to USMA SLE but needed to turn it down due to a family commitment. However, we visited West Point and he got a great feel for USMA during his tour. After all of these visits, Navy is still his #1 choice. He was fortunate enough to receive an LOA. The only thing left for him is the nomination, and those interviews are weeks away. My question is, if Navy is where he wants to be, to the point of him wanting to go the NROTC route if he does not get a nomination, is there any benefit for him completing the applications to the other academies? He does not think it is fair to ask for recommendations and set up interviews with his liaison officers if he truly does not want to attend these other academies. However, we read all he time that MOCs want to see an interest in serving in general. Does withdrawing his applications to USAFA and USMA show a disinterest? Could this have a negative effect on obtaining a nomination? Very curious what others have gone through.
