    I am currently on hold for USMMA and I have begun applying to TAMUG.

    Can you transfer from TAMUG to the academy or do I just apply the following year?

    And if I did recieve an appointment next year, would I be entering USMMA as a plebe or will they take certain credits so that I would technically be a sophomore?

    You'd have to re do all the plebe year regimental non sense at KP. So you'd be a plebe. Some of the credits would transfer so you'd be able to place out of a small handful of classes.

    TAMUG is an excellent school. Have you visited? That was DD second choice, also. We live 1/2 hour away. Good luck to you!

    @TexasSailMom, Yes! Got her appointment this week! Have you joined the S Texas Facebook page? There is a send off on June 18. What school does your DS go to? DD goes to Friendswood. There are FIVE in her graduating class going to service academies. 2 Naval, 1 AFA, 1 West Point and DD to USMMA.
