    It's impressive that, percentage wise, they didn't lose more men than women, or vice versa between their first day and graduation. Obviously they lost more men in numbers, but the percentages stayed abut the same.

    Do the SA's outreach more to women, to attempt to close the gender gap at all? With the push to get more girls interested in STEM education, I wonder if the number of women is rising? My daughter has attended many events in middle school specifically for girls interested in a STEM education, but her school (a STEM magnet) is still about the same percentages of boys and girls as the Academy based on this.

    I'm pretty sure that the SA's are supposed to have the same male/female percentages as their branch of service.
