If you did something like quote Waiting for Godot in your motivational statement then it would blow the selection board's minds, like this guy must be reeeeeally smart!!! And they would have no choice but to pick you.
Haha. Impressive, not everyone is a knuckle dragging math guy. As far as absurdist existentialism theater goes, I am more of a Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead fan. But I'm a giant nerd.

If you quoted Naval history in minutia, would it also blow minds?

Actually no, it's the sad burden of being a history major in that you learn early on that actually quoting anything about history in minutia just annoys people and thus historically it hasn't ended well for people who tried.

Well there goes the usefulness of all those hours spent enveloped in Shattered Sword and Mahan's The Influence of Seapower Upon History.....

So you’re of the blood, love, and rhetoric school?

ROTC would not have allowed me to study what I wanted to study (technical theater/design and production- lighting and sound type stuff). Seems like everyone in ROTC has some type of STEM degree. My Theater degree did me well enough to get me jobs that enabled me to both pay for college and pay off any debt I had accrued. I'd make money on a couple of tours working backstage/front of house. I also refereed pro hockey and taught sailing, as well as was the captain of the sailing team. It was a good time.

I worked in that industry for a few years before I decided to join the military.
Pretty awesome that you followed your passion in my opinion. Good for you.
