    I'm Donita,

    I'm from NC applying to KP right now for the c/o 2018. I have spoke with many folks at the USMMA and I have found out that NC has 6 states slots and I also obtained some inside info. that no one applied to KP from NC last year (class of 2016) therefore the slots were passed on to another state... I must say KP is the best kept secret from the south... Anyways is that a good thing for me?

    First, if Donita is anywhere in your name, don't use it in postings.

    Second, if a state does not use its slots, those slots for that year only do go into the national pool. If your state has 6 slots, then next year there will be 6 slots. Get your paperwork going as soon as you can. Your Senator or Congressman will tell you when they need things.

    Check out the USMMA.edu website to find out the process and all that you need to do. START NOW. http://www.usmma.edu/admissions

    Once school hits in the fall, it will be a LOT harder to get things done. It's doable, but why go through all that stress. Keep your grades up Senior year, keep your nose clean, and learn time management and study skills if you don't know them or need them for HS, b/c you WILL need them at KP. Good luck!

    Hi Donita,

    In 2016, North Carolina sent 6 plebe candidates to Kings Point, my son being 1 of 6. This year, in the class of 2017, we sent two plebe candidates.

    I am the President of the north Carolina parent's Club and know that this information is true.

    If you have any specific questions about admissions, please do not hesitate to write them and I shall try and answer them to the best of my ability.

    Regards,
    USMMAUSNAMOM
