    In your Opinion....

    If you are looking at Army ROTC, VMI has had the number 1 Army Cadet in the nation 3 years running. If you are looking at Navy ROTC Marine Option VMI was the top performing school of Officer Candidates at OCS this past summer. So VMI has top notch programs all around.

    Senior Military Colleges

    I don't know how the academics compare to West Point or the Naval Academy, but will tell you they are not easy. As for VMI militarily and physical compared to the Citadel I can not say for sure, but I will bet that we are on par with, if not better then the Citadel in those areas.

    Senior Military Colleges

    I will disagree with you Whistle Pig, while the admissions may not be as selective as the Service Academies VMI is a rather selective school. The average high school GPA for incomeing rats is 3.5 and the avarage SAT is 1200 (on the old scale). 50% were in the quarter of their high school class...

    Senior Military Colleges

    VWIL is not a Senior Military College. They have a Corps of Cadet program, but are not one of the 6 SMC's. The others you stated make up the 6 that are designated my congress as SMC status.

    Assessing NROTC Units ...

    I will tell you that VMI has one of the top NROTC Battalions in the nation. This past summer our Marine Option cadets outpreformed any other NROTC program at OCS. I am not positive of the numbers, but I think around 80% of our OCS cadets graduated in the top 10% of their platoon. The other 20%...
