    Hi everyone,

    Would anybody happen to know if they will be taking a smaller class size again this year? I have yet to take my official visit to the school and was wondering if they talked about how big of a class they will be taking this year when they visited. I know they still haven't fully completed renovations on the last of the dorms but any other insight would be great.

    Thank you!

    Hey KP Joe, We did an admissions tour last summer and we were told the same thing. They said this year's class would be slightly smaller due to the fact that they are re-doing their barracks and all would not be done in time.

    Well, since for the Class of 2017 there were 237 students who reported in, and given that this year the new class will bring in 250 students, then this year's class size of 250 will be slightly bigger than the previous one because there will be 13 more students who will attend.

    Proposed class sizes (250) were the same as this year... Unfortunately, several appointed students last year changed their mind too late to be replaced before indoc. Hopefully, this year's decliners will decide much earlier...:frown:
