    Hello all,

    I'm Kevin currently a rook 30 some days out from recognition in Norwich University. I am also in the National Guard going to OSUT this summer and transfering back to IL for fall semester...

    I am going to apply to West Point while back in school in IL still doing MSII for ROTC, and get a interstate transfer to the IL guard and SMP once back...should I apply to USMA as a National Guardsman or have better chances as a civillian?

    Anywho, greetings. I will definitely researching my butt off here...

    Welcome to SAF, WickGuardsman! I'm a "newbie" on the USMA Field Force and don't know the answer to your question. I would re-post your question on the USMA forum.

    The individual I work with for the WP AoG preps is the same person who handles Soldier Accessions. Give him a call and see if you can get an answer "straight from the horse's mouth". Here is his email signature block:

    I would also like to say that WP is not the only federal service academy that commissions Army officers. Have you ever considered the US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings point , NY?

    Call LT Gaultieri at the USMMA Admissions office (516-726-5647). She handles the VT candidates.
