    I'm reapplying to West Point this year and I'm going to college in the meantime. My Fall semester schedule is as follows:
    American Government and Politics
    Applied Calculus
    Military Science I(ROTC)
    Fundamentals of Chemistry
    World Literature

    Also, does doing ROTC strengthen a candidate's application?

    Your schedule is fine. The admissions office recommends reapplicants to mirror what plebes at West Point will take and you are.

    ROTC does strengthen your application. Simply, reapplicants looked at favorably as you have shown the committment to reapply.

    Make sure you talk to your PMS and get the ROTC nomination too.

    Make sure that you have re-opened your file with your RC.

    Complete everything in your SSK by OCT 1 except (obviously) your 1st semester college transcript and your 2 college prof's SOEs.

    Retake the SAT/ACT - that is how college reapps make themselves more competitive

    Make A's and B's in your classes.

    Good luck! :thumb:

    Reapply-What in the application from last year transfers to this year

    DS just decided he wanted to reapply for the class of 2016. He is currently a freshmen taking the classes first year students at West Point would take and doing very well. He is also a contracted AROTC 4 years scholarship cadet and has already been given leadership roles. He talked to the RC today. How much, if any, of the application is pulled over the this year from last year? Also would his PMS look negatively on him pursuing an appoint to West Point after accepting the scholarship? Thanks.
