    Exchange student at academy

    I know people at academies can stay at another academy for a semester. Do ROTC cadets have an option to stay at an academy? If not, what opportunities are there to work with SA cadets/on SA campus?

    Why Did You Choose USMMA?

    Like I said in another recent thread, I was 3Q'd to USMMA, all I need to do is sent in my grades and I'll receive an appointment! So I'm USMMA bound, class of 2022. I was wondering why everyone here, yourself, your kids, nieces, cousins, etc, chose KP. I have my own reasons, but sometimes...
