Plan B, I was just looking for some advice. Is EA helpful for plan B? I have a son, who doesn't really have or want a plan B, he wants to be in the Coast Guard. When I mention the other Academies and going for a nomination, he says he wants to be in the Coast Guard. lol When I say what do you think your plan B will be, he says he will enlist if not accepted. Is that a viable option? if he enlists will they take note and help him become an officer that way? He has a good GPA 3.89, Varsity letters, leadership, athletic. Latest SATs 770 math, wr 700. If he gets accepted into a different academy can he eventually go to Coast guard? Trying to figure out how this works...Thanks for your help!
