    Curious to see the stats for the class of 2018 along with the scholars program.

    Also, any info. about how many incoming students were re-applicants?

    thanks!

    It will probably be a few weeks until Institutional Research compiles official stats for the Class of 2018, but 12 members (5%) of the class were reapplying.

    thanks, do you know how many of the total applicants were previous applicant's from last year? In other words, what percent of the re-applicants made it?

    It would also be interesting to know how many swabs have departed after two weeks in and for what reasons....

    I'm going to be blunt here. The numbers sure, that's always interesting to see. But the reasons: Its not my business, your business, or anyone else's business but the individual who leaves and their families. It's their choice to relay why they left, not for an Admissions Rep, cadre, or any other Academy personnel to broadcast it on a public forum. Those people deserve some privacy.

    I will tell you that there are generally two basic categories:

    1. DOR
    2. Medical

    One member on here was disqualified during Swab Summer for Color Blindness and is now a member of 2017. I was disqualified for medical with 2013 but am now a graduate with the Great Class of 2014. We both chose to share our stories here, so its fine. People are medically disenrolled for a variety of reasons but its rare. People choose to withdraw for many reasons, not for them, parents pushed them, another path seemed to fit better, etc. At the end of the day, USCGA creates the size of the class anticipating that there will be drop outs. That is what is supposed to happen. My class started on June 28, 2010 with 293 people...we graduated just above 200. It happens.

    I don't mean to sound antagonistic and I am in no way trying to put you down for asking questions. Questions are great and we'd all be happy to help with almost any question you have. Personally, I wouldn't have wanted someone coming and publishing why I left (even if it was stated without names) if I didn't know about it.

    Trackandfield08 - that's exactly what I meant. I have seen those statistics given out many times before and they are not specific to any swab.
