Hey guys, This forum was an invaluable resource to me during my last two years of high school... it really helped me prepare myself for the admissions process as well as West Point itself. The insight I really appreciated was from current cadets who had knowledge of beast, plebe year, etc., fresh in their minds. Now that I am a cadet myself, well into plebe year, I've got a pretty good hold on everything and felt that I should give back to the site that helped me out so much. With that, I'd like to invite all you candidates to ask whatever you want about beast, the admissions process, plebe year, class validations, etc. I know a lot about the classes and validations, so I can answer almost any curriculum question, which will be helpful for you guys to determine which AP's to take an what scores to aim for. Also, for the record, I am a female, so if you have any female specific questions, I can try to answer those as well. Good luck with the admissions process, everybody.
