    My DS will be attending MMI. You should be receiving a large envelope full of information which will include your login for the portal.

    My daughter will be there. I've asked her to join this forum, but she is so balls to the wall busy with school, crew, after school activities and everything else, she isn't online much.

    She is CGAS wait listed, but she applied anyway because she has decided she WILL go to the Coast Guard Academy.

    My son will be self prepping this coming year! He unfortunately did not get in with the CGA. He was EA and deferred to RA but got denied. He is determined to get in next year.

    COASTIEHistory is your user name, yet you are going to West Point?

    I think you could have some interesting conversations with my husband. He has a Master of Arts in Military History, and works on projects for the Coast Guard Historian.

    Well I chose it because I've heard they have a great track record with all the academies, they offer credit so if you really wanted to you could get your associates and commission. Also I've heard they have great success with self preps so if they do good with self preps I'm assuming it's even better chances for sponsored students.

    I am hoping to get my DS in for Self Prep. Just waiting to see if we can afford it. Otherwise he will self prep at our local college. He wants to enlist but I would love for him to give it one more try.

    MMI is pretty generous with tuition discounts and scholarships. So far, they have granted our DS in state tuition and have given him a small scholarship. They have also auto selected scholarships which they had my DS apply to. He will know after 6/30 if he will receive any additional scholarships. Just with in-state tuition and the small scholarship they gave him the cost of the program is about the same as our local college and with DS living at home.

    My son will be self prepping this coming year. He also received two scholarships from MMI. Can you tell me where he can get the information to apply to the auto select scholarship.

    It was given when my son was accepted: MMI will give you 50% off your tuition if you have a certain GPA and SAT score. Out of state is Double in state tuition and because my son met the requirement they reduced tuition by 1/2 which made it the same rate as in state. We didn’t apply but MMI gave it to us. We also received another small scholarship. Make sure you apply to the other MMI foundation scholarships listed on their website if you haven’t already done so. The school auto applied for some for my son. It maybe the same for you.

    Thank you. Yes he got the 50% off tuition scholarship and a small scholarship. He also applied to a bunch others on their website. I would love to get one more scholarship so fingers are crossed.

    The MMI Foundation scholarships will be awarded after 6/30. Keeping our fingers crossed for additional blessings.

    I chose MMI over the other options because of a couple reasons. First, they do take a majority of the Civil Prep program kids every year, and additionally, I have a personal friend who did Civil Prep a year ago and is a current plebe and he recommended MMI to me.
