    I was wondering from anyone out there who has been in this situation or a current or former cadet who knows someone with this issue. I am an Active Duty soldier who will be turning 23 next April. From my understanding I will be 69 days older than the cutoff if I understand it correctly. Is this correct? Or does no older than 23 mean not yet 24? And if I am too old by 69 days is there any possibility of a waiver or exeption to policy? Would vacant soldier for USMA affect that decision? Any advice, information and guidance is greatly appreciated!

    Verbatim from Admissions:

    Each candidate must:
    be 17 but not yet 23 years of age by July 1 of year admitted. (The increase in maximum age is a result of a recent change to Title X, U.S. Code.)

    I have not heard of an age waiver, ever.

    Age Waivers are given all the time now, talk to your CO :thumb:
    The CC of USMAPS is 23 or 24 years old now and, he's prior service.

    That's the first I've ever heard of such a thing. It certainly wasn't discussed during our admissions training. I'd be interested to see something in writing about that.

    Quoted again, from the USMA Admissions FAQ Page

    " Q: Are there age waivers?
    No. You must not be older than 23 years of age on July 1 of the year entering USMA (22 on July 1 of the year entering the Prep School)."
