I've always had a liking for the military. I didn't really know it until last year, when I figured out I love anything in a uniform. This year I discovered my total love for the organization, strength, honor, and courage of the military. They are everything I want to be.
I am a sophmore in high school. I have an average GPA of about 4.3 (weighted) and 3.9 (unweighted). I take many Honors classes, and am taking my first AP class this year. I have done everything 'right' academically. I have been in marching band for two years. I joined NJROTC this year. I want to pursue a military career, or, as a parallel, political.
What I want to know are the advatages of West Point versus Annapolis. Which one is harder to get into, what are the requirments, which one will 'get me farther', what are the differences between them? I have scoured the internet for arguments for both and it usually comes down to what branch of the military you want.
Which branch of military doesn'tmatter to me much. When I was smaller, I wanted (very badly) to be a pilot... only to be told that I needed 20/20 vision for that, lol. My dad tells me the Navy eats better (I don't know if he's kidding or not) and that that's pretty much the only difference between the Army and the Navy. All help and advice recieved greatfully.
