    SAT/ACT too low. Don't forget the averages for each class are generally lowered by recruited athletes, so if you are not a recruited athlete you would need to exceed those averages.

    Being 3Q you cannot get into MAPS but if you do not receive an appointment you would be eligible to be considered for an AOG scholarship.

    MMI or Northwestern Prep

    My son went to MMI a couple of years ago, 100% of the sponsored and self-sponsored USMA candidates received appointments. that seems to be the norm down there. We are a long way from Alabama but that place holds a special place in our hearts for what it did for our cadet...

    Cadet wanted to bring porn star to the ball

    Legendary! This guy identified his problem, found a solution, and put his plan in action.. Hopefully the brass has a sense of humor, this cadet came THIS close to being every other cadet's hero.. You've got to chuckle at this, he wasn't hurting anyone. She obviously said yes for the publicity.

    Boys State Trouble

    DS had this same problem, our local American Legion Post had not sent anyone in a long long time and every time he called he got the run around. Eventually he went there in person and politely refused to leave until he found a sympathetic ear. Together they located the area coordinator and found...

    And he did the same thing on the Army side earlier. Say what you want about him but he does love the military.

    Army-Navy game: White Power hand symbol appears to be used during pregame broadcast

    Fake News. To involve Cadets and Midshipman in the media's desperate attempt to garner attention by any means is disgusting.

    What are my chances?

    Test scores are very low. Excellent leadership activities. You do not mention athletics or CFA. At face value those academic numbers look like a top civilian Prep School candidate . Of course there are many factors we cannot possibly be aware of. Keep working at it, anything is possible. Good Luck.

    More than 10 Nominations per MOC?

    You would think it would be the same slate twice or how would you do it? I would be crazy to put candidates 1-10 on one list and 11-20 on the other thereby theoretically giving #11 a better chance for appointment than #2..

    President Trump Pardons Accused War Criminals

    Bottom line is we sent Chief Gallagher, Maj Goldsteyn, and LT Lorance to kill the enemy, they followed those orders. To me it's that simple. There is no black and white in the wars being fought in Middle East, we are the only ones in uniform. Our enemies are disguised as harmless civilians...

    MMI Self-Sponsored Chances?

    Actually he had never heard of it when it was offered.. I do know of others in his class at MMI and now at USMA that did make their RC aware that they would be interested in an AOG scholarship if not offered an appointment..

    MMI Self-Sponsored Chances?

    An AOG scholarship is referred to as a Golden Ticket. The reason is AOG scholars (my DS was one) are guaranteed a spot in the next class as long as they don't "fail a class or get arrested" as he was told by his RC.. MMI has a very good record of success with self sponsored cadets as well but...

    What is a disqualifying CFA?

    Very surprised he got by with those numbers. But if they didn't ask for a retake its all good..

    Overnight Visit

    DS thought it was very funny when I told him the impressions from a few recent overnight visits was that they don't work out daily at West Point. His exact response was, "I don't need someone to hold my hand and watch me do a few pushups in the morning, when I am in the gym 2.5-3 hours a day, 7...
