    How much does gpa matter if there's no class rank?

    Essentially, they will use your ACT score, and that will end up establishing the academic portion. You should be pretty solid with that fantasy ACT.

    Accident at West Point

    Got a text from an unknown number last evening. Was my son saying he is safe. Was a huge relief, as he is in the same training as the cadet who died, and likely knows him/her fairly well. We had deducted that my son was in the field yesterday morning, and likely not amongst those involved...

    Super Bowl for Service Academy Grads

    Take a deep inhale. Going to be holding your breath for a while.

    Super Bowl for Service Academy Grads

    Nope, still doesn't ring a bell. But if you want to talk more about the last two years, I have perfect recollection; tremendous games! Surprised you didn't love Michie Stadium. It having been deemed one of the top football game venues in the country, I'm sure you are in the small minority who...

    Super Bowl for Service Academy Grads

    Boy, let me think. Its so long ago. I remember last years game, as I was there. That was a fun one; well, for Army fans it was fun. And I remember the year before, when Army took AF out in Colorado Springs. I really enjoyed that one. I know I was at the game against AF in 2016; but no, I...

    Super Bowl for Service Academy Grads

    I have been a West Point dad for three years now. All I can say is "it seems pretty easy to me". LOL.

    Super Bowl for Service Academy Grads

    Football players go to West Point to be soldiers, not pro athletes. And they are quite successful at that. ....and yet still, Army keeps winning football games. Its almost like divine reward for selfless commitment.

    Football days with your plebe

    It's all good. As I said, all equal. Just because Navy has lost the last three football games, and has been getting whooped by Army, doesn't necessarily make them "less" than West Point. You all still have a "fine" little academy. And anytime you want we will send some of our Rhodes scholars...

    Football days with your plebe

    Don't they say, "only as good as your last game"? But if you want further evidence, feel free to look at the last three A/N games. We are all equal. It just seems Army has been a lot "more equal" than the others lately. Just saying.....

    Football days with your plebe

    Heaven does actually root for Army over the other academies, but we all made a promise to never disclose that as such favoritism might damage the spirits of the Navy and AF faithful. They have been through so much already on the gridiron.

    Football days with your plebe

    LOL. My question was posted in 2016. Since then I have become and expert on the subject, having visited my 2020 Cadet too many times to count. But I appreciate the post.

    Act score question

    ....and to state further, this isn't a pass/fail admissions process. You can exceed all the averages for every measurable component of the application, and be an otherwise spectacular candidate, and still be denied an appointment. Indeed, hundreds if not thousands of candidates fall into this...

    Act score question

    Do you assume that your overall WCS, and your application is vastly superior to all the other candidates in your district competing for the one or two appointment spots available? Or, do you take the position that, because you have no idea who your competition is, or what their scores are, you...

    Act score question

    Your scores are great. Unfortunately though, Math is probably the most important, so I would keep taking the exam and see if you can bump it even one point. But they use all of the subject scores. Push hard Ben, until you get that appointment. Then you can become a Cadet and start wondering...

    Current Plebe; Ask Away

    We visit my son regularly at West Point, and in three years have enjoyed Highland Falls quite a bit. When my son was deciding which academy he wanted to attend, we visited both WP and Annapolis. From my (parent) perspective, when comparing the town's Annapolis won by a mile. (When comparing...

    BEAT NAVY!!!

    Discipline, organization, details, and pride should be important in all components of the military, or private enterprises for that matter. I have always been surprised that USNA is okay with it's sloppy March On; particularly in light of the fact that it is on public stage.
