    got notified I got my BFE in the mail from a call from my dad as I am away at college. By far one of the best phone calls I have ever had. So my question is now do I need to finish out this semester of college? I would stay regardless but I am just curious as to if it is a must. I am also a freshman ROTC cadet who is contracted and any information regarding how that process works as far as "transferring" to west point would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all the help throughout my journey, this is truly one of the happiest days of my life!

    Yes finish it out! You never know if West Point wants to see your spring semester grades. You can't show them if you drop out lol. Congrats!

    Finish up

    Yes, finish up this semester WP will want your 8th semester transcripts. That also means don't slack off and let the grades slip.

    Push Hard, Press forward

    Talk to your cadre about how the contract gets handled.

    If you drop out/withdraw/let your grades drop, they can withdraw your offer. As and Bs are best, don't slip below a C in anything. Same goes for HS students with an offer. Stay out of trouble and don't get hurt.

    If you put on your application that you are currently in college, then yes, finish strong. If West Point doesn't know that you are currently in college and they accepted you based off of high school performance, I don't see the harm in it.

    However, if I could redo it, I would have worked a lot harder in college/got good grades to try validating courses. If you can validate one or two courses it will make the worlds difference!
