    Are cadets allowed to choose their roommates after the first year? At VMI you room all in the same company as rats but are free to choose your roommates starting 3rd class year. I roomed with guys in my company my whole cadetship just because we became such good friends that first year. Back...

    You're right. None of this will impact your DS or his experience as a cadet. My point and I think other people's point is that the cadet experience between athletes and non-athletes is very different. I do have a question for you bulldogs or any other SMC alums. I've heard that at El Cid the...

    "It has zero impact on my DS. He is not D1 athlete material but he does have an AROTC scholarship. I can't see how what the athletes do or don't do is going to impact his experience in the Corps of Cadets or in the Army." I hope it doesn't at El Cid. At VMI there is and has been for a long...

    We (VMI) won exactly ONE game my rat year but it was against El Cid and it was the Corps Trip in Charleston where I'm from. It was GLORIOUS! We won a total of 9 games during my cadetship. Permits (Athletes) vs Non-Permits has always been a bone of contention at VMI. But the Permits don't get...

    What are my chances of getting into the Virginia Military Institute, based off this:

    VMI does not require standardized test scores to be admitted for admission decisions. However, ACT/SAT scores are required to apply for ROTC scholarship and to apply for the institute honors program.

    How did your child decide which universities to apply to for ROTC?

    I have three boys and although they have been going to visit VMI since they were babies, I made it clear that they could go to whatever school (within reason) that they wanted. My eldest went to Virginia Commonwealth University and my middle son is going to Old Dominion University. My youngest...

    VMI Class of 2028

    It happens various ways. Some rat/dyke relationships are set up in advance if they know each other. Many firsts will choose a rat from the same town/state/major/athletic team, etc. At some point during hell week they'll compile a list of rats who do not have a dyke and the list of firsts...

    Navy or Marine Option - NROTC?

    Yes indeed! https://blog.usni.org/posts/2012/02/15/farewell-to-a-warrior-colonel-william-h-dabney-usmc-ret I also had the pleasure of having him as the Commandant of Cadets while at VMI.

    Navy or Marine Option - NROTC?

    I have been asked this question many times. The advice that I've always given and seems to have worked is as follows. If you're questioning whether to go Navy or Marine Corps, then you're heart isn't truly dedicated to becoming a Marine. GO NAVY! I had to make that same decision, counseled...

    SMCs At A Glance

    VMI graduated almost 350 on the 16th and commissioned just over 170 on the 15th. 35 graduated and 9 commissioned back in December. VMI still states on it's website that it's the largest Army ROTC program in the country.

    Deceptive Advertising? R&B

    well that sucks. DS will not go wrong with either school. I am from Charleston, SC and choose VMI. Both great schools but I obviously have affinity for one over the other!

    Deceptive Advertising? R&B

    DS is a 3YR AD recipient. In state at VMI. I paid more out of pocket this year on scholarship than I did his rat year when not on scholarship. 🤷‍♂️

    What are my chances of getting into the Virginia Military Institute, based off this:

    Provisional Appointments are certificates issued to a young person legally related to a VMI alum upon the request of an alum. The certificate is signed by the director of admissions and states that the appointee is "issued a provisional appointment to enter Virginia Military Institute with the...

    What are my chances of getting into the Virginia Military Institute, based off this:

    I've always wondered if a provisional appointment actually held any weight in terms of actual acceptance later. All my kids got their provisional appointments when they were infants. I always thought of them as purely ceremonial. RVM
