On the prompt that asks "Compose your own responses. In the space below, explain why you want to attend the United States Military Academy and serve on active duty as an Army officer.", should I elaborate some on why USMA should want me as a cadet rather than solely why I want to go to USMA like it asks? I'm asking this because I know someone who graduated from West Point and that's what he did on this essay. Also, should the essays be more concise and straightforward, even if my natural writing style is more elaborate? Someone I know who works in ROTC admissions suggested this, so I was wanting a second opinion. Thanks.
