I'll start by saying that I'm not trying to start a Citadel vs. VMI argument at all. I'm an interested student, and I was wanting some feedback from those of who who have experience with these schools. I was absolutely committed to VMI until I got my info packet from The Citadel. I've now been watching their videos, and they are starting to sway me! What are the pros and cons of attending VMI vs. The Citadel? I love the military atmosphere of both colleges. I also can see myself thriving at either Charleston or Lexington. I'm looking for the absolute best SMC experience to prepare me for a career in the Army.
