    Are there any West Point Graduates or students at West Point that I could e-mail to help guide me for my application process to West Point?

    This forum tends to be pretty good for that. Participants are applicants, current cadets,good graduates, and parents of all three, lus a few friendly visitors. But here, be careful to judge how knowledgeable your sources may be.

    If you're actually in the process, your Field Force Representative (local admissions office volunteer, often but not always an alumna/us.

    Good luck!

    Might I also suggest you do a search if you have a question too or are just looking for general information. Lots of times questions have already been asked.

    If you PM Buff81, she might be able to help you out. She is a moderator and very knowledgeable.

    Your better bet is to get in touch with your local field force/liaison member, if available. Check you candidate portal for your local field force member.

    For grads that have not been involved in the admissions wont' be able to help you much.

    For a cadet, you are relying on his or her personal experience.

    I'm a cadet, fourth class.

    My advice would be to find your Field Force Rep to ask about the application itself (although fourth class cadets can help a little with this because we just went through it)

    find a cadet if you want information on current life at the academy

    and find a grad if you want information regarding life after graduating.

    Pm me if I can help you with anything. :smile:

    Also I don't believe this was mentioned but don't forget the power of the forum search function (at the top of the page). It is very helpful as many of the questions you probably have about the application process, getting prepared, CBT, cadet life, etc. have probably already been asked and discussed, and they are there for your reference. :thumb:
