    FYI:

    I am posting two new stickies in the USMA forum addressing the most commonly asked questions about USMA admissions.

    I will lock it in order to keep the thread clean.

    I'd rather edit the original document than have multiple posts succeeding it. This keeps the information in a 'one stop shopping' format instead of having to read through the whole thread and cull information from all the posts.

    I welcome any feedback that you have in order to make this as accurate and informative as possible.

    If you have any comments, suggestions, think something is unclear or needs to be added, - please send me a PM and I will edit as needed.

    Thanks! :thumb:

    OK - FINALLY got the 2nd sticky re admissions posted. :w00t:

    While fine tuning and editing it last night, I literally fell asleep at the computer! :sleep:

    When I woke up at 3am :eek:, I decided that it could wait until today to be posted.

    It too is locked as explained above. :lock:

    Again, any suggestions, comments (even negative ones :smile:), requests for clarification etc. are welcomed!

    Thanks! :thumb:

    It is some really nice work. Hopefully some new users will see it. Nice job. :thumb:

    The only thing I could think of that is missing is that it might be of someone's interest to attend R-Day rehearsal as a means of visiting West Point.

    great idea buff81. I'd keep the acronymns list in alphabetical order here are some additions to consider adding

    A-Day -Acceptance day NC's become Cadets and Plebes
    APFT-Army physical fitness test
    BCGs-basic cadet glasses
    CBT - cadet basic training
    Cow - Junior Year cadet
    DoDMERB - department of defense medical examination review board
    MOC - Member of Congress
    NC - New Cadet From R-day to Acceptance Day
    Plebe - first year cadet
    R-Day - Reception Day First day New Cadets report
    Yearling - Sophomore cadet (also known as Yuks)

    Ken2012 - I hadn't thought of that. Thanks!

    sweet tooth - I appreciate your reply and suggestions.
    My intent with the 'Admissions' stickies was to create a document about things that pertained to Admissions only.
    I needed to divide it in two, hence the acronym and non-acronym sections.
    Each section is loosely chronological instead of alphabetical, thinking that that would be more of a logical order.

    There is a wonderful thread in the Community Information and Feedback forum called, 'The Acronym List'. All the ones that you listed are on that list.
