    I am aware that when you apply for USMA you have to complete 2 or 3 short essays. I was wondering do those essays fall into your academic part of your WCS?

    If I recall correctly from my QNS letter, the essays do not count towards your WCS (whole candidate score). This means they do not count for your academic score. I believe they are there in order to give the admissions team a chance to see what kind of person you are, and your motivation for attending the academy.

    When you do the essay, it specifically says in the instructions on your portal that they will be graded for grammar.
