Brief explanation before the main question: I was attending enlisted Nuclear Power School when I applied for the Academy. I was ecstatic when I found out I got in. Less so when they said I had too attend NAPS. I understand it is an honor to even be considered, but I am anxious to actually get to the Academy after being enlisted since October 2014. I will (fingers crossed) be in the commissioning class of 2021 (I'd be 25 years old). To exacerbate my worry I am interested in the Nuclear field which tacks on even more training time. How can I make the most of my time at NAPS, and later the Academy, to best set myself up for a rewarding career, and, possibly, marketability on the civilian side, given I will be significantly older than my colleagues? I feel as though I'm behind before I've even started.
