    THE OFFICIAL STATS: USMA at West Point graduated 995 cadets from the Class of 2015 on SAT 23 May 2015 at Michie Stadium in a spectacular ceremony that featured General Martin E. Dempsey ’74, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, as the commencement speaker. After taking their Oath of Office, these members of West Point’s 217th graduating class were commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army (three will be commissioned in the Air Force, one in the Navy and one in the Marine Corps). This year’s class includes 162 women, 97 African Americans, 87 Hispanics, 66 Asian/Pacific Islanders, and 10 Native Americans. The class also includes 8 combat veterans, 13 international cadets, and 88 of its members are sons and daughters of West Point graduates.

Cadets were nominated by Congress from each of the 50 United States, as well as from military service sources. Seventeen combat veterans entered West Point with the Class of 2015.

    Since August & December grads are still considered 2015 grads (right?), will USMA release that information after their graduation(s)? I know the numbers will be small by comparison, but I've seen on some FB pages where some cadets had medical issues (maybe even academic) and will graduate/commission late. Just wondering how much of a percentage increase that will be.

    This information is recorded but will not be publicly displayed even though its less than 20. Those 20 are considered tripping or hitting their forehead on "the bar", in other words, you got a big favor kid!

    August and December grads have received no favors. They have overcome some type of adversity (academic, medical, family issues back home) and are still able to graduate as members of their class if they complete all the requirements.

    Tug_boat has it correct though – the number added to the class will be about 20, therefore, statistically insignificant.
