    I am international student and i want to write everything i know and ask everything all of you internationals know about west-point admission. What really matters to be admitted ? Is the west-point the only one who decides or our countries decision matters too. What are main factors to be admitted as the international?

    Franco....
    You claimed on a prior post that you already applied three times and was declined.

    After filing three applicatons, by now you must be already aware that you must be sponsored by your government as Kinnem has posted above. I am unclear on what information are you seeking here on the forum. If you have been turned down already multiple times, then you had better have a plan B to pursue. In addition, you had better hone up your English skills to pursue a world class education at a United States Service Academy.

    I am seriously unsure if you are really looking for help or just a troll.

    There are more than SATs. As mentioned by the others there is so much more to it for an international student. There is a cap on the amount of Intl students allowed and government relations, your host country pay back, etc all factor in. None of us know the details to how that works as it is so much bigger and complex how they select students from what countries. If you had in fact applied 3 times previously you would know this. I doubt you get a reply from any international students, haven't run across any on this forum.

    But you also need to have a back up plan because the odds of getting into any of the academies at an international student are very small. One of this year's international cadets was already a student at his county's premier military academy. Get into your own countries military academy. This will boost your application as it shows that you are already planning to have a military career.

    I do remember many of our international Mids were generally 19-21 years old. Some attended their own countries military academies and others had been stellar college students. You need to have a Plan B.

    Yes, there are things that matter more than SAT scores. Each cadet/midshipman has to meet minimum standard in academic, leadership, and physical for an appointment. Although SAT/ACT are not the perfect indicator of someone's academic performance at SA, it's a pretty accurate indicator if a candidate can meet the minimum academic requirement at SA.

    Seriously, don’t you guys know when you’re being taken for a ride? This sounds an awful lot like the recent poster who had ‘his jailings’. This is about the only time of year when cadets are at USMA and have just an ounce of down time. This is just a bunch of cadets who created a profile and are messing with you. Same with the ‘jailings’ posts. Yes, they are mostly very busy running beast, but there is a bit more time in the evenings without the pressures of homework. Same thing happened last year. The week that USNA detailers arrived on the yard for their training someone posted the infamous post (now deleted) about being a conservative Christian homeschooled guy who would not take orders from a woman and was afraid that the female midshipmen would try to seduce him. It was so outrageous that my very first thought was, “I’m glad the mids have the time to have a little fun.”

    In order to gain entrance to any of the military academies, your English will need to improve. So far I have noticed grammar errors in every one of your posts.
