I'm from the Philippines, female, 19 years old as of 2015, and will immigrate soon. I'm currently a senior in college and about to graduate. My course is Bachelor of Science in Accountancy. You may be wondering why I'm graduating young, this is because the old curriculum here in the Philippines consisted of only 6 years of elementary school and 4 years high school. My uncle is in the US Navy and he said to me that if ever I wont be able to graduate (because my visa is currently in process), I should attend the Naval Academy primarily because we cannot afford the high tuition fees in the US. But I am determined now to graduate before immigrating so that at least I have an achievement. He is not a Naval Academy graduate, he just attended the boot camp, I guess. (Naval Base: San Diego, CA) He said that I should research about requirements on how to enter the Academy. Everyone in our family wants me to be a lawyer, but I don't think I can handle it. My uncle said that I should enter the JAG. I already asked my professor if is it practical to take the CPA board exam here in the Philippines since my license will not be recognized in the US. My prof said I'd have an edge over the others. Growing up, it was my dream to be in an office and climb the corporate ladder until I had my internship in junior college. It opened my eyes that I didn't want that life. I really want to enter the Naval Academy but I learned that the courses are not in line with my course now, because they offer STEM while I'm in the business category. But I think I can handle the academics. What I'm worried about is the physical part. I am not physically fit, and I am not involved in any sports. I thought that I wouldn't need it, since I can make it up academically LOL. I am trying to make things right before I leave. I graduated 3rd in my class in high school, and a consistent honor student. I joined several clubs in highschool ( the school paper, choir, etc) I was a dean's lister in the first three semesters in college. I already failed 2 classes (9 units) because as you know, accounting subjects are really hard I was emotionally confused at the time. I topped the Professional Accountancy Program Comprehensive Examination (sort of a screening test/ battery exam) in our department. I am not active in other organizations in our college because our chairperson then discouraged us to join because he said that orgs would take us away from studying well. I am just a member of the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (all BSAccountancy students are automatically members) and I joined the school's Commission on Audit (2 years, junior and senior auditor). I am not really active in terms of extra-curricular activities, but a lot of my high school teachers and college professors can vouch for my leadership skills inside the classroom. I had my internship at SGV and Co., the top accounting firm(holds 40% of the market) in the Philippines and partner firm with Ernst & Young. I am currently attending a COLLEGE in the Philippines. It is one of the elite colleges here. I know that in the US there is a difference between a college and a university, but here, there isn't really, besides the number of courses offered. It is also among the top 3 law schools and top colleges/universities that offer accountancy. A lot of you may be thinking that I should just continue with being a CPA. Well, I do not want to bore my self to death! smile emoticon I have also checked the courses offered in the academy. I'm thinking of Cyber Operations, or Nuclear Engineering (tho I am not a math genius grin emoticon ) Is there a chance for me to be accepted in the Naval Academy? I know that admissions is very competitive. Any suggestions on what I should do with my life?
