So my USNA portal status changed to turned down 15 minutes ago. I have pursued this my entire life and I am not quitting. Which brings me here. I am still in shock yet the mindset I have developed instantly seeks guidance to make myself the most outstanding candidate that cannot be rejected next year. I have just emailed my admissions counselor asking for feedback. As for reapplying goes I believe my resume was outstanding and it earned me an NROTC scholarship. My grades were horrible and that was most likely the factor. What academics in college will make me competitive? Also when it comes to reapplying should I tweak my essays or use the same ones? I am medically qualified so will I have to do another DodMERB? I want to compete for an LOA and I'm not sure how to go about that. I want my application done asap. Should I wait until I can get some letters of recommendation from NROTC? I am all over the place in determination. I would like any sort of guidance from successful reapplicants. I'm willing to show my "resume" to look for areas to improve on. I just need a list of things to get after. I need something to work on. I am so motivated and determined. USNA admissions probably just did me a favor.
