    I believe that West Point has a number of slots reserved for Soldiers every year, so probably pretty good. You still have to be a good candidate, though. Have you contacted West Point's admissions office?

    Keep on it. Do you have command support?

    Are you a 15R?

    chances

    Glad to see more active duty on the forums... The single most important thing for everyone, in my opinion, is to just be proactive and stay motivated. Keep moving forward. Too often those AD get told we have no chance and it's stupid, but in all reality hard work goes a long way.

    Glad you're here 15r.

    Do you guys know how often these slots get used up? I remember hearing that the service-connected ones mostly go unused.

    Can someone translate? What does it mean to be a "15R"?

    I heard that little to none of the slots get used up every year. I think I am wrong though, its just what I heard.

    That is true, but regardless one must be competitive academically/physically to be considered even as a soldier/combat vet.
