    Here it goes....

    IMHO, there are no guarantees to success at WP. I feel a year at a prep school would be extremely beneficial. One big advantage, you’ll be a year older and more mature. Time management is a huge skill to have mastered before entering any SA. Having a year of academic courses that mirror Plebe year will less the shock factor of doing so much in such very little time.

    Take a look at attending a prep school. USMAPS is reserved for those who are academically DQ’d (recruited athletes, prior military, underrepresented who need to refresh academic skills) I’m rather partial to NWP (Northwestern Prep)

    Push Hard, Press Forward
