    I dont think they mean another academy when they say Plan B. While I am sure that going to USNA is your son's second choice its like saying Harvard is my plan A and Yale is my plan B. Either way, good luck

    If your young adult is looking for the Corps of Cadet experience they might consider one of the Senior Military Colleges, VMI, Citadel, Texas A&M, Norwich or Va Tech. There is also University of North Georgia but they're Army only.

    Great educations and life changing experiences for highly qualified candidates the somewhat astronomical costs can be mitigated through ROTC and Academic scholarships.
