    If you are triple qualified are you out of the running for prep school?

    I believe USMAPS is for those not academically qualified

    True.

    246 can be accepted into each USMAPS class.

    for the regular prep school, no. For the civil prep school scholarship, being 3Q is a requirement. I think about 50 civil prep school scholarship are given out each year, so much harder to get.

    I'm not sure that the rules are set in stone. My DS was prior service and last year was given a spot at USMAPS, but in April Major Wire called and asked him if he was interested in going direct with the USMA class of 2018 - It was his choice. He chose to go to USMAPS since he's been out of the classroom for a while and his Calculus was a little rusty.

    I have always heard (other than athletes and prior service) an applicant was only admitted to USMAPS if they were not academically qualified. Ran across a parent of a current cadet who said their DS was 3Qd and also top of his class and did a year at USMAPS before entering West Point. Like a previous poster said, nothing is concrete in the ARMY!

    It is my understanding as well that USMAPS (for those applying out of h.s.) is only offered to those who are 2Q and lacking the scholastic Q (I know someone where that was the case who was NOT a recruited athlete). It is thought an additional year of acaemic prep will better prepare them for WP. I don't know the exact criteria for recruited athletes who attend USMAPS.

    I have never heard before this forum where you cannot go to USMAPS if you are 3Q. Not sure where that info comes from. My experience in going to USMAPS and trying to get people enrolled is that is not the case. IMHO ANYONE that USMA wants to go to USMAPS can go. Saying that, I have never seen an international student apply or be enrolled.

    In every FFR conference that I've been to, we have been told that a candidate must be qualified medically (DoDMERB), physically (CFA) but be disqualified academically to be offered USMAPS.
    Academic DQ can be from low test scores, low class rank or a 'D' in any academic class.
    That said, it is also my understanding that every soldier can go to USMAPS.
