Navy is an extremely financially sound decision, as you're being paid to attend, you're being covered by military healthcare, and you're receiving countless other perks and free stuffs. While you won't pay a single dime, you are literally gambling as a 20 year old your life until you're at least 27! After sophomore year, Navy owns you. If you're caught not upholding their unrealistic standards, you're discharged with a bill for $250k! You don't even find out what your job will be until after you're contractually obligated to the military. If you didn't like you're first deployment and want to get out, that's tough luck. I'd advise you look up the declining junior officer retention rates to get an idea of how realistic the prospect is of you not enjoying your time in the military, and why having the option to quit is a luxury we're not afforded.

Obviously, we all live on campus so close to classes. Our dorm has a post office, a barber shop, a ding hall that seat 5,000 and a few restaurants, it is cleaned fro us by a cleaning service, our laundry is collected, washed and dry cleaned and delivered to us, we even have someone making sure we are safe and accounted for! The only drawback is that becasue it is built of stone, cell phone reception could be better!

There's a large amount of frustration derived from the fact that, despite being entrusted with the lives of your sailors and marines immediately following graduation, it seems the administration hardly trusts you to lead most parts of your own life. If you don't mind being a 22-year old senior who: still lives in a freshman dorm, has their attendance ritually taken before every meal, has a legitimate daily midnight curfew, can only leave campus on weekends (if you're SAT in all areas), and who has to route paperwork up to officers and other midshipmen students (!?) every time you're allotted vacation, then you won't mind having your hand held by the military bureaucracy that is USNA. If you consider yourself as someone who enjoys being spontaneous and independent, look elsewhere.
