    I have aspirations to attend the West Point school. My goal is to get input on my chances. I am 21 years and attend Community College with a 3.0 GPA. My Act in high school was a 25 but I got an 18 in math. I am a really good athlete and have been told that if I wanted to I could play D1 lacrosse. I want to go air defense artillery and major in Physics. I am also very social. Chances?

    Honestly,your chance of admission to USMA is at best not good at all. Your ACT score is far too low, and the math score, which is probably the most important, is well below that. Your college GPA is also low, and from a community college. Being athletic alone doesnt carry the day with the academies. You need the academics and leadership potential as well. Sorry to provide bad news, but that is my brutally honest assessment.

    Your comments come off as racist. Just because I am a minority and go to comm college makes you think you are better than me? You are the definition of what's wrong with America. What do you know anyways your just a Fox News lover

    Sounds like, independent of your race, you're not a good candidate.

    Really? Have you ever lived in an inner city where you learn to fire a gun at 5? I want to serve my country and they are ignoring me because of age/race

    Nowhere in your original post did you mention you being apart of a minority. Therefore brovol's insight was based simply on the numbers you provided, not your race.

    Guys, I believe this is what the kids call a "troll". Don't take the bait.

    He looked down on me and I do not take that disrespect. He has not been through the challenges I have had but the academy wants him? He is book smart and I am street smart. Street smart is more important in the military

    Actually, Service academies are looking for extremely qualified men and women of all races and nationalities to attend especially since the USA is made up of a very diverse population. Race has nothing to do with the opportunity. Only the ability to lead with integrity.

    I would imagine asking a question and then attacking those that take the time to respond when you don't like the answer is not an admirable quality of an officer in the USMA.

    Guys, if you look at Bobby's replies on his profile is most clearly an internet "troll", looking to cause problems on this forum. Do with this information what you will.

    Dude why do you have to be so sensitive? You asked a question about how your chances are and someone gave their honest opinion based upon what information you provided. No one brought up your race but you, and if you always play yourself as the victim in life you will find a very hard time succeeding in whatever you do.

    Really? Because a good officer gets stuff done and that's what I do. Have you ever had to defend your family from a threat? I am attacking them because they look down on me because of my circumstances!

    Why do you think I am not a person? I was told about this website hoping people could tell me what I need to improve on! Everyone just tears me down

    Sounds like you're fooling around with everyone for some laughs...
