    Here are the official stats...I was off on a few things such as the Germany cadets are apparently service family kids and it was hard for me to distinguish whether the Kyle's, Jesse's, Chris's etc were boys or girls :biggrin:

    Also note less than 10% of applicants were offered appointments...no wonder the competition was so tough.

    Ultimately, the Class of 2011 will create their own identity and destiny--
    But here, at least, are a few facts about their beginning:

    U.S. cadets hail from 39 states and with those living abroad coming from Puerto Rico, Germany, Japan, South Korea, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
    Additionally, there are four international cadets who are sponsored by the United Arab Emirates, Marshall Islands, Romania, and Antiqua. These will be the first representatives of the UAE and Marshall Islands to join the Corps of Cadets.
    74% of the Class intends to major in engineering, math or science.
    30% are female and 18% are from underrepresented racial groups.
    Over 50% come from families whose immediate members are in or were in a branch of the U.S. military.
    Overall, the SAT average for the class is 1275 (critical reading and math).
    3345 students submitted an application; 341 were offered appointments and 275 indviduals will swear-in on R-Day.

    Trolling through the old archives. Congrats to 2011 as they made LIEUTENANT just a few weeks ago...

    Imagine that, how time flies.
