    If a sponsored prep attends NMMI for a year what would his requirements be in order to receive an offer of appointment?

    You will know this when you sign your contract with the USMMA.

    Generally speaking:

    1. Update Parts 1, 2, & 3 of your application.
    2. Secure a new nomination.
    3. Maintain DoDMERB qualification. (we input a "Statement of Present Health" form)
    4. Take two semesters of math (Pre-calc, Calc), Chemistry, Physics, English, PT, and ROTC, (minimum class requirements) with at least a 2.0 cum. GPA.
    5. Retake and pass the CFA.
    6. Re take the SAT and ACT at least once.
    7. Obtain two letters of evaluation from Instuctors here (math and science).
    8. Be a "satisfactory" cadet (minimum).
    9. Get an overall "approval" recommendation from me. I'm not trying to sound like a pompous jerk here. If you meet 1 through 8; #9 is easy!

    The hardest part for most is the academic requirement (#4).

    I understand sir! If you did not meet those requirements the first year, would you then be asked to stay another year at NMMI?

    Generally - no. If you tried for a second year it would be as a "free agent" or Self Prep. Academic requirements for normal college transfers are a 2.5 cum GPA (as posted on the USMMA web site). Since most of those that don't make it are for academic reasons (low GPA's), it becomes mathematically tougher to achieve the higher standard required (see #4 above)

    We have had USNA Foundation preps looked at for two years of sponsorship. However, the reason was medical.
