    ROTC and National Guard

    Hi, I am going to talk to a recruiter soon, but I was wondering if anyone knows/has done college, ROTC, and national guard simultaneously. If this is possible, would I be released from my contract as a Gaurdsman if I were to receive an appointment to USMA? If I do not receive an appointment...

    Remedial Request

    I recently was alerted that I had a remedial Request. They just want some documentation for a hospital visit. This wasnt a serious visit and I won't be disqualified for the details that arise from this. Does this mean that aside from the extra documentation, I am largely qualified?

    7th Semester

    I am taking 6 AP classes this year, but one of them does not show up on my transcript and will not show up until next semester. You see, I am taking AP Government and Politics this semester (0.5 credit class) and AP Macroeconomics next semester (0.5 credit class). So basically, I am not sure...

    COVID-19 Vaccine

    I am currently on the payroll of a long term care facility and will be receiving the first round of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines. Do you recommend that I take this vaccine? I am worried that side effects or any other complication could DQ me during DODMERB examination (I have heard...

    Deadline question

    I’m confused on what is considered a “fully complete” application. if I have finished everything except for my DODMERB exam, is my application considered complete? I ask this because Deputy Chief Mullen said that “DoDMERB has NO deadlines. An applicant should be in final medical status...

    Dual Citizenship

    I have a dual citizenship with the Ecuadorian Government. For anyone that has been in my shoes, should I start the process of rescinding my citizenship now or should I wait until I know if I got in or not? Thanks in advance.

    Vice Presidential Application

    Why was the application so short? It basically only asked for my name and a few activities I do. Do they look at the actual file when giving noms?

    DODMERB Date

    Hi, I was wondering when a date would appear on my application portal. I have finished the majority of my application except for the CFA, which I need to retake. Is there a way to get a head start on the process? I hear it takes a while. Thanks in advance

    LOA Eligibility

    Is it still possible to receive an LOA this late into the process? I am applying for WP and have seen a pretty big amount of self reported LOAs from users on the SAF.

    SAT scores

    I recently got a 1330 SAT score. I also have a 4.43 weighted GPA (4.0 unweighted), 10 AP classes and am 20/660 students. I was wondering if these stats were competitive enough for WP and if I should keep spending time on improving my SAT score (I’ve been trying to work on my CFA scores instead)

    It Was a Good Run

    Unfortunately, I have not received a nomination from my Congresswoman. Although I was selected as an alternate and I still have yet to hear back from my Senator, it is unlikely that I will receive a nomination. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who gave me feedback and advice...

    I’m not sure if anyone will be able to answer this, but I’ve seen other people give insight into the competitiveness of an applicant’s general area. i am applying from central Florida for the class of 2025 to West Point.
