    Im applying to USMA class of 2017. Next week I have a free wk before I am out of town for another three weeks. I was going to work on my essay questions (statements) but it looks like the USMA portal wont be open until late July. Id like to get a jump start.

    Does anyone remember last years questions?
    Does anyone know if basically the questions repeat from year to year?

    Also I sincerely appreciate and value all of the help that i have gotten on this forum. Thank you. I sure hope to pay it forward.

    Last year's questions were as follows:

    1. Explain why you want to attend the United States Military Academy and serve on active duty as an Army officer.

    2. What are the most important qualities in becoming a successful USMA cadet and a successful Army officer?

    3. West Point and the Army are committed to the idea that respect for others and an understanding of diversity are important leadership traits. Why will you be successful in working with leaders, peers, and subordinates of a gender, color, ethnicity, and/or religion different from your own?

    I am only a second time applicant so my guess is as good as anyones when it comes to the new prompts for this year. If I had to guess I'd say the first two don't change much year to year and the third is specialized for each year. I can't promise anything though.
