    Does anybody know what the composition of the admissions committee is? I am just wondering who my audience is in my application. I have searched the forum but haven't seen any explanations.

    Admissions Committee.

    Responsibilities: To recommend annually to the Academic Board criteria for admission and readmission to the Military Academy and, based thereon, to present to the Academic Board the names of candidates found qualified and recommended for admission and readmission.

    Composition: Director of Admissions and Registrar (Chairman), tenured representatives of the Departments of English and Mathematics, representatives of the Commandant, director of Physical Education, and Professor of Military Hygiene (when appropriate), two other members appointed by the Superintendent to serve for a period of 2 years, and Deputy Director of Admissions and Registrar (Secretary without vote).

    It's 15 members across the spectrum of departments, and mainly at the senior level (academic department directors and equivalent). You aren't going to tailor your application to that diverse of a group. Best bets are spelling and grammar checks, and clear and concise thoughts.

    action by admissions board

    was told by ALO that board action is by vote with simple majority decisions on the candidates.
