    Hello all,

    I am currently a National Guard soldier who applied through a Service Connected Nomination. Although I am 3Q'd, I do believe my academics fall short of what West Point would like to see. I was wondering if I can still be appointed at USMAPS if I am 3Q'd and not offered an appointment to USMA. I know this is not an ordinary question, and do not expect any subject matter experts on this, so I appreciate your responses in advance.

    Thank you,
    PFC

    Just contact the Admissions Office Reserve POC and ask the question. If I have to guess, you can't be consider for the USMAP as you are already 3Qed. In order to be appointed to USMAP, you have to be "disqualified" academically. If you are already academically qualified, I doubt the admissions office will go back and disqualify you.

    If you are 3Q'd USMAPS is not an option as you have to be Academically DQ'd to go to USMAPS.

    Contrary to wht others say, as a prior enlisted soldier, you are automatically considered for USMAPS along with USMA. Your commanders endorsement even allows him/her to suggest USMAPS or USMA.

    I think enlisted applicants are handled differently. You might meet the mark to be 3Q but they might decide that being out of a school environment for several years is too long a gap and think prep school would be a good option (and it is).
