I am currently thinking about my application for next year. I have committed to a relatively prestigious Plan B and plan to join NROTC during my first year. However, as I think about how my application will look next year, I am concerned that I made the wrong choice and should stay in-state at a school where it would be easier to make better grades and maintain a higher GPA. However when I think in terms of where I could possibly be for the next four years, it is an obvious choice (the harder school) for all aspects. I, in no way, intend to simply take the easy way out, as I know that won't be an option should I receive an appointment to the USNA. I am just worried that this "better" school where I'd much rather be might make it a little more difficult to get into the USNA. I am just looking for some advice for successful reapplicants or anyone who can shed some light on the subject. I've read most reapplicant threads, but I just want to ensure that I am making my application as successful as I can while sufficiently challenging myself next year so that I am prepared should I get in. Thank you in advance!
