Hi everyone, first post. I am now beginning my first year as a Norwich Cadet (first day as a rook begins tomorrow) but my true heart lies in West Point. My father of recent passing was a USMA Cadet and as such has always been my dream. However his passing severely interrupted my admissions process and I in a hurry applied to Norwich. If I was to choose to begin the admissions process again for West Point for next year, what would the differences be having a year of schooling already completed? Would my year at Norwich be a benefit or a hindrance towards my application? I realize that I would still have to go through four years at USMA if accepted. Thank you.
