I didn't receive any nominations this year, and I am beginning to doubt I am even triple qualified for the Academy anyway because of the C's I received in IB Chemistry. I am of course already beginning my plan to re-apply to the Naval Academy, and I have my major/classes picked out at whatever college I will attend. I am stuck between two colleges: University of Florida and University of Central Florida. UF is a bigger name with a bigger reputation, but I believe UCF has an equal good Aerospace Engineering program; I also like UCF better as a college environment. However, UCF does not have an NROTC program and UF does. To the Academy, do they prefer you do ROTC in college, or does it just benefit those who want to and then have a leg up at the Academy if they get in the second time? I truly respect all NROTC and USNA candidates equally, but I know the path I want to take personally is USNA and I'm not giving up the dream!
