My son just got an appointment to the Naval Academy - Advice?

My son just accepted his appointment to the Naval Academy. He had been hoping for the Air Force Academy, but the appointment hasn't arrived and he reached the deadline for having to say yes/no to Annapolis.

He went through an introductory program last summer at the AF Academy, but he has zero experience with Annapolis.

Can anyone who attended provide any advice about what to expect, how to prepare, and most importantly, what you really wish you knew in advance? I'm specifically looking for information that will help him acclimate faster than if he goes in blind.

Thanks!

All I can say is congratulation!

Annapolis is an excellent school and you should be very proud of your sons accomplishment.

Like any military training, remind your son he has two ears and one mouth for a reason and they should be used proportionally.

Also helps to be in the best shape possible when he goes.

Again, congrats!
