And for all you kiddies, there's only 3 military academies in this country.
The Merchant Marine Academy and the Citadel are not.
the citadel isn't, but mma is along with cga.
yes, we're the ugly stepchild of the service academies, BUT WE ARE A SERVICE ACADEMY. its also a lot harder than the other service academies and deserves more credit than it receives.
i had over 50 credits at the end of my plebe (freshman) year. we do 4 years of college in 3 and with the same budget that westpoint has for their lawn services. we also take legit science and engineering classes instead of political science/liberal arts. and one more thing, we have a battle standard. that means we had students die in war. all the other service academies do not send out their students.
