Alright- I’m a female Junior in high school with a 4.0+, a Varsity letter from Freshman year, a 1960 on the SAT for my first time, I’m physically fit, and I speak rudimentary Spanish, understand a bit of German, and am teaching myself Arabic. I want to go to one of the service academies, but I can’t decide which, (mostly looking at Air Force or Naval Academies). I want to fly, like so many other people, I know, and I want to fly fighters. However, I’m also very interested in languages. If I do well enough at one of the academies I am also considering the Uniformed Services University in Maryland for a degree in combat medicine. If I did that I would want to go to a combat zone, not be a stateside doctor. Yeah- three different jobs, I know. This is a lot of information- but at least you can kind of see where I stand. If anyone could give me opinions, tell me about their experiences- especially anyone in the Marines (one of the main reasons I’m looking at Annapolis). Thank you SO much!!!
I´m living in Maryland right now and I´m moving in 3 weeks to TX. So me and my friends want to travel before I leave. The problem is it`s winter so travel to the ocean is not so interesting right now. What would you recommend us to visit?
We visited already:
So any more ideas? Thanks for your help 🙂
U.S. Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs, Colorado) (air force)
U.S. Coast Guard Academy (New London, CT) (coast guard)
U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (King’s Point, NY) (deals with the Merchant Marine…overseas trade, maritime industry, etc, not the marines
U.S. Military Academy (West Point, NY) (army)
U.S. Naval Academy (Annapolis, Maryland) (navy or marines)
Based on what you know, could you order these in terms of physical intensity, intelligence required, honor associated with this branch, and usual graduate success level?
United States Military Academy, West Point, New York
United States Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland
United States Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado
