    CFT at Camp Buckner

    I heard somewhere that West Point lets some rotc cadet come and participate in CFT, does anyone know how one applies or gets selected for that tremendous opportunity?

    I wouldn't worry about it too much. Your Math and CR scores are good and a 610 in writing is not even that bad (I got a 590 in writing). Since they still have limited data on how kids do on the writing section I doubt it is going to play a huge role in the consideration. Back to my first point...

    Virginia Tech NROTC

    The main difference is that at an academy your in a 24/7 military atmosphere. At VT at around 6pm you can take off your uniform and go be a regular college student (some had to stay and study, and some went o go see movies). As a freshman however, I don't think you would see much of a...

    Virginia Tech NROTC

    VT is my backup plan as well, and I also found out that I was accepted! I attended the Spend a Night with the Corps earlier in the year and got a better glimpse of what the VTCC is all about. I would definitely recommend attending the program because when I was there I could tell that it is a...

    Asthma waiver?

    My situation was exactly the same (double qualified swimmer disqualified for asthma even though I wasn't on meds). USMA does automatically request a waiver. Since he was disqualified that means you most of already sent his birth to present records. At this point in the process for me USMA ended...

    So should I wait for a possible DQ or be pre-emptive?

    If you have never had a problem, why create one? Just go through the exam and if you get a DQ, you probably would have a very high chance of recieving a waiver (especially since your a track athelete). Good luck :thumb:

    AOG Prep?

    From what I understand those who take this path are not guaranteed a spot to West Point, so if you are rejected the next year, aren't you basically stranded without any options (college-wise)? Do people apply to other places while they got through the prep program? Thanks for the input, I'll...

    AOG Prep?

    I got an email saying I was qualified and that I might want to consider an AOG prep as a back up plan. Does anyone know if expressing interest in this program will hurt my chances of still getting an appoinment for class of 2012. I feel like if I tell my MALO I'm interested they'll just put me...

    Price is my MOC. I got a nomination from Burr via letter today, but I don't know if he does competitive or principal... I'll keep my eyes glued to my candidate webpage and if I don't see anything in the next week or so I'll give usma a call.

    nomination when will it show up on website?
