I have been planning to attend the University of Central Florida for a couple months and then to reapply to the Coast Guard Academy ( As well as the other Academies ). The benefits of attending UCF in regards to reapplying are that they have a NCWA wrestling team, which would mean it wont count ageinst my NCAA years at the USCGA, and it is a relatively cheap option. Recently the coach at Marrion Military Institute and the USCGA coach contacted me and said I should go self-prep for a year at MMI. Do you think my chances to get into the USCGA would be so greatly improved after attending the MMI then at the UCF to warrant spending more money and going so far from home? What do you think Any comments would be great! Thanks!!
