Default West Point Physical Requirements

After a PM with Dadandgrad, I began to wonder whether or not there is a physical size requirement for West Point.

Thanks.

I believe there is some kind of height weight chart that WP appointees get... you can use this as a guide, not sure if it's any different or not though

I know there is a height requirement and someone posted earlier about being underweight so there must be a weight requirement too.

There are height/weight requirements. When I received my LOA, one of the conditions that needed to be met was resolving my "height/weight" infraction. I had to put on 10 pounds before I could receive my appointment.


Does anyone know, what is the medical exam they give you at West Point on R-day? Is it just like a regular checkup?

Thanks a lot.

Following the army height-weight chart provided by KveTina's, I'm good to go.
