okay well my top three options right now are:

1. USMA or USNA if I can get all the requirements and be selected.
2. National Guard Scholarship to UF or FSU.
3. Enlist in Navy or Army

All three of them are totally fine with me. After some thought engineering and the whole program thing is not on my priorty list

You should also look at this from another perspective.

Failure builds character. If you were successful at everything you did those people interviewing you would no angle to see how you deal with failure. You need these situations to cement in your ability to deal with set backs and rebound on your own without someone holding your hand.

Review the situation. Catagorize what you did and how you can fix it next time around. Also contemplate a good answer for how the experience made you feel.
A good interviewer will ask these questions and gauge your responce. If you have solid answers that are consise you will be that much better of than the others how stare and go "Uhm. Yeah...I really don't know."

Well thought responces like this will proove you thought about the situation and learned from the failure.

As an ex-corporate head hunter I looked for these things...eagerly. And truthfully 1 out of every 100 or so folks actually had a good answer.
