    Why did you choose a service academy?

    I am thinking about applying to a SA, more specifically USAFA. I've done quite a bit of research and know a lot about the SA experience because I used to live right outside of Annapolis. Now I live somewhere I have a much better chance of getting a nomination, because barely anyone here knows...

    Leadership

    Who is the best leader you have had in your life and why? What qualities make him/her such a great and inspirational leader? Who is a subpar leader you have had? What qualities made them subpar/unlikeable? Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Food during BEAST

    How often do cadets eat during beast? Most cadets lose weight so what factors in to this? Are the eating times very rushed or is there less food given or is it simply a combination of extreme exercise and stress? Is that weight often gained back during the academic year?

    Boots (and comfort in them)

    Just got oakleys ~last week. First time I wore them they tore up the backs of my heels. Wore them again yesterday and they reopened the scabs. Is this normal when breaking them in? What can I do to prevent this/further blistering?

    Working out at Westpoint

    Hey all! I was just recently accepted into Westpoint and I have a more niche question for past and current cadets. How much time is there for voluntary workouts in a typical day? I love weightlifting and I would love to continue at Westpoint. Thanks!

    Marine to USMA?

    Hey, I was curious about: Is it possible to go from Marines to West Point? Also, if it's not possible, do I keep my time when switching from USMC to Army? I am not yet enlisted into the Marines, but I know I want to be one, however, I also want to go to college afterwards, but I've heard and...

    Unliked by Cadre

    I will be going to beast this month. There is one cadre/yuk that I had conflict with before— Will I be In contact with him as a plebe? He is my ex GF’s older brother and said he would find me there and make beast harder for me. Should I be concerned?

    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?

    Posts after AROTC?

    I heard at USMA posts are chosen/ranked by the cadets... how are posts assigned after AROTC? Are there certain jobs assigned for the posts or...? ALSO will there still be that new branching system in place where AROTC and USMA cadets will equally compete for jobs in 2025?

    ROTC Scholarship - accept or reject

    I have wonderful financial aid from my university. However, I also earned the AROTC scholarship. Should I reject and give it to someone who may actually need it? In that case my service commitment would only be 3 years as well, so in the situation I would like to move to a civilian career I...

    AROTC

    I’ve read a lot of thread on this, but what are your opinions on Army officers from ROTC vs West Point? I’ve seen controversial things. Ie: ROTC grads are ready to work since they’ve been more chill through college but I’ve also heard USMA grads are better leaders (bc of their experience). Would...

    Current Female CO 2024 - It's that time again! Ask me anything!

    Hey guys! It's me again - I've posted on this forum before, probably 2 or 3 months ago, and answered any questions that y'all had about West Point, R-Day, being a plebe, etc. I figured it was probably time for another one, considering so many of you are receiving your appointments, or are...

    How much sleep does an average West Point cadet get?

    Pretty much as the title says. Also, does your sleep schedule change over the weekends or summer training?

    Are my Academics good enough for West Point? Or I'm below the average?
