Six reasons why you might be a midshipman…

Here are the initial qualifications for being accepted into the United States Naval Academy:navy mascot2

  1. You are a US citizen (although there are ways around this one)
  2. You’re of good moral character–no arrests, stuff like that
  3. You’re between 17 and 23 years old
  4. You’re unmarried
  5. You’re not pregnant. You can’t even graduate if (they know) you’re pregnant. And the Honor Concept means they should know if you know
  6. You have no dependents. This means children as far as I know. Siblings who depend upon you I don’t think count

If this is you, keep going.

  11. Bullet #5 says “Honor Code” — that’s a West Point thing — we are VERY deliberate in our terminology around honor and at USNA we live and follow the Honor CONCEPT. I know it may seem minor — but it is a very big distinction and one which is very important to our institution.

    • You’re right–thanks for correcting that. My daughter was very involved with that as a Firstie. I appreciate you keeping me on my toes!
