Review United States Naval Academy
The United States Naval Academy is one of the premier leadership institutions in the world. This place is definitely one of the most challenging institutions in the nation and the world. Drawing interest from all over, the Naval Academy does a superb job at gathering the greatest minds to serve as the next generation of leaders for the Navy and the United States. Challenging all Midshipmen mentally, morally, and physically, the Naval Academy ensures that its graduates are men and women of character who embody the ideals of duty, honor, and loyalty, and are ready to face any problem they may be confronted with.
Attending USNA was one of the best decisions I had ever made. Without a doubt, being a midshipman changed me in ways I could never have imagined and led me to meet the most influential people in my life. Though being a midshipman can be extremely challenging at times, every minute of the experience was worth it. If you are hard working, willing to learn, and have a desire to serve your country, then the Naval Academy is the place for you.
Navy is an extremely financially sound decision, as you're being paid to attend, you're being covered by military healthcare, and you're receiving countless other perks and free stuffs. While you won't pay a single dime, you are literally gambling as a 20 year old your life until you're at least 27! After sophomore year, Navy owns you. If you're caught not upholding their unrealistic standards, you're discharged with a bill for $250k! You don't even find out what your job will be until after you're contractually obligated to the military. If you didn't like you're first deployment and want to get out, that's tough luck. I'd advise you look up the declining junior officer retention rates to get an idea of how realistic the prospect is of you not enjoying your time in the military, and why having the option to quit is a luxury we're not afforded.
