Today I found out that I received a nomination to the Merchant Marine Academy as well as an appointment. Yet, it has been a dream of mine to go to the Naval Academy ever since I was a little kid. Point blank, I want to become a Naval Officer. I am not sure what to do. Would I be able to go to the Merchant Marine Academy for a year and then re-apply for the Naval Academy again? My goal is to become the best Naval Officer that I can be (SWO preferably) would the Merchant Marine Academy make me into a great Naval Officer too, if not better than USNA?
