    Hey, I'm reapplying too, I don't really think it matters where you go, just enjoy it. I am going to attend Norwich for a year then reapply to Navy, Go through two plebe years on my part lol. Just improve on everything, and what they suggested to me was take Calc 1 and 2, Chem 1 and 2, Eng. Comp. 1 and 2, and ROTC if available. Think of it as a year of transition or a blessing in disguise. I was told those who go to college for a year are much more mature and usually do better then those straight out of High School, and Most High Rank seniors are not straight from High School (I'm quoting what I was told, but it sounds reasonable). See ya in 2014 my friend. :thumb:

    are you taking sat/acts again? techniqually it should not matter because they are meant to see how you will do at a college level, but west point keeps telling me i have to take them again. Naval Academy did not mention whether to or not.

    curiousr28 - it's up to you. If I were you I would either call or go visit MMI.
    Make sure it's for you.
    If you do the ECP program you need to go to LTC for 4 weeks this summer.
    If you don't get into WP then you will be commissioned as a 2Lt when you graduate with your associates. You will then move on to get your Bachelor's degree.

    There are advantages and disadvantages to each program.

    SAT's matter at West Point. If they are too low then they want to see you take them again even if you are in college. MMI does have an SAT prep class and you will take them there on campus.
    Good Luck.

    I will be going to LTC this summer regardless of which school I choose. Also is that something that will help my application?

    Are you going to be a University freshman? If so then how will you go to LTC if you go to a University?
    LTC takes the place of the first two years of ROTC.

    Also - if you are re-applying to Navy then Army ROTC won't help all that much. It will help show leadership but you can't get a ROTC nomination.
    If you are planning on re-applying to Navy then probably your best bet would be to enroll in NROTC.

    See for Marion I have already been put into a slot for LTC, and it is nonbinding if I go there, so I figure I am going to go to Marion for a week, then to LTC, graduate late July, and then I will make a decision. Its an odd case, I know, but I will be attending LTC no matter what the circumstance.
