A shy, introverted, and hesitant person should not attend this school.
Any person who is irresponsible, the casual drug user, and people who aren't willing to work hard for a goal should not attend this school. Students who buck authority, or cannot work together with others should avoid this intitution like the plague; you cannot make it throug the United States Naval Academy alone. Academics are rigorous, and a strong focus is placed on physical development in order to provide dedicated, hard-working Navy and Marine Corps Officers. Those willing to work hard and apply themselves can succeed and provide themselves a good start in life.
A person who does not wish to be put in harms way for their country should not come to the Academy. It's important to be empathetic and to be able to act on those feelings. It's a misconception that military officers should be unemotional - an unemotional person will not make it at the Academy or in the Fleet. Pride is great to a certain degree, but don't let pride overshadow humility.
