I thought I would start a thread as to what the best use of the summer is between high school graduation and starting college in Sept. (Plan B) for those who plan to reapply to USNA for class of 2022. There has been a lot of information on what to do in the first semester of college, taking plebe year courses (Physics, Calculus, Chemistry, English), enrolling in NROTC, getting college professors recommendations, etc. What about the plans for the summer? Is part time job/ sports in a local league the best combination? Volunteering perhaps? What about going abroad for a month or so (too fluffy?) Taking classes at a local community college? I am thinking that those 3 months is valuable time that the academy would consider.
