I am almost done with my USMMA application as well as my nomination applications. I did pretty well in high school (3.72 gpa and a 12 something on the SAT), and participated in many sports and activities (with leadership roles). I also received three service academy nominations last year to USNA. After not getting in I set my eyes on USMMA and have been in touch with the soccer coach about playing there. There is just one problem. My grades this semester are not good. I keep wanting to tell myself that is it is because I am just getting over mono and im still disturbed from when I took my friend to the hospital. But the truth is I need structure and discipline in my life. My question is, should I apply to Valley Forge Military Academy and College and transfer there next semester? Will the academy see that as taking upon myself to take a prep year/semester? I am it a bad spot and would appreciate any help on this topic. Thank you!
