Hi everyone. I am a sophmore in high school and am working toward trying to recieve admission to the naval academy. I am in JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, multiple sports and clubs, and have good grades (and they are contiunally going upward). I applied to the STEM program at the Naval Academy the day the application went up. Hoping to be admitted to that. If that doesn't work out I will be attending a SLS at the Citadel that week through JROTC. Later in the summer I will also be attending another SLS through JROTC at Smith Mountain Lake. I plan on also applying to the Marine Corps Summer Leadership and Character Development Academy whenever the application come out, tho I do not know if I will be accepted to that either. From what I've heard from other midshipmen, summer leadership seminars and other military summer programs can help out alot with admissions and somewhat increase chances of one day being accepted. I constantly surf the web trying to find different programs but they are hard to find. I was wondering if anyone knew of any they would recommend applying. Also, if anyone has ANYTHING at all they would recommend to help out or any types of clubs, extracurriculars, etc. that they'd recommend joining that'd be a huge helped. Thank you for all your time. All responses are greatly appreciated. Thanks and have a nice day!
