Hello, please bear with me because I have quite the dilemma and I don’t know how to decide. I applied for USNA Class of 2023 and was denied, but I would like to apply again to USNA this upcoming year. I would like to try and apply to USAFA this year as well. My problem is that I have to chose a college to attend this year. Right now I am trying to chose between the University of Georgia (UGA) and the Citadel and I was wondering if anyone in this forum had any ideas on which college would be more impressive to the admissions board. I already called the admissions of both service academies and asked for their advice on which college to chose, and they said that they couldn’t really answer that question but they wanted to make sure I was challenging myself. If I went to UGA, I would do mechanical engineering and take the rotc program there. I would be able to do a lot of different clubs and take 17 credit hours. If I went to the Citadel, I would be taking mechanical engineering as well but with 21 credit hours, and the knob year at that college is considered to be extremely hard. What I am currently leaning towards is the Citadel, because it would show that I can handle the rigor of military and academics, but if anyone has any advice or could input their opinion, I would appreciate that tremendously!
