A Virginia high school senior is "feeling amazing" after he was accepted to each of the nation's four military service academies.

Timothy Park of Fairfax, Va., said he is leaning toward West Point Military Academy in New York, but he has not made his final decision.

"I'm feeling absolutely amazing right now," the 18-year-old Trinity Christian School student told WUSA. "It's so exciting."

Park was accepted to West Point, the Naval Academy (Annapolis, Md.), the Air Force Academy (Colorado Springs, Colo.), and the Coast Guard Academy (New London, Conn.). Each of the four academies offered Park a full scholarship.

Park told WUSA there is about a 1 percent chance of getting accepted into all four academies.

Park's father Sean is a lieutenant colonel in the Army and told the station, "We're very proud and excited he's going to serve our country. As Americans, there's no better thing than protecting our country."

Graduates of the military service academies enter their respective branches as commissioned officers.
