Perhaps, anyone your age should not "Go from memory alone"Going from memory alone, it looks like SATs are down a little from previous years.
As mentioned above a more comprehensive class profile will be posted shortly. It will include a complete breakdown of eagle scouts, class presidents etc.Reading between the lines, they basically only list one EC and then break out team captains. They must hold athletic team captains in great stead.
This kind of ethnic/gender/racial statistical breakdown always cracks me up.17% Women
6% African Americans
Not sure how I ruffled your feathers but I was just making a few general comments. For the past many years, including the last two with the SAT change, the SAT composite for the three major academies have all hovered right around the 1300 range and the other two have been 20 or so points less. This I have annually pulled from US News college profiles. You are probably correct, it is too soon to do any useful comparisons.Just_A_Mom said:Let's break apart the idiocy you just posted:
In a few weeks the USMA will post a more comprehensive class profile. You can then statistically break it apart if that sort of thing is fun for you.
I think the reason that number was chosen to be in the spotlight in the profile is that if you look at the corps as a diverse group of people of varying interests, talents and backgrounds - then the ONE big thing that unites them is athletics. West Point recognizes the value of participating on and if possible, leading an athletic team. Being a team captain shows you are capable of leading your peers and that you are looked on highly as a person of character by your coach and team.As to the sports captain comment, I was merely making a positive comment. If one desires a WP appointment, it would behoove him to start scmoozing his coaches.
If "leading minorities in the military" was a "fortunate" experience, I have to assume you led people who were capable and competent and completed the mission successfully. I have done the same in the private sector. What is unfortunate is we have people in Congress and other positions of leadership who are more interested in raw numbers than what the numbers actually represent.As one who has led minorities in the military, I would change the above stated "unfortunately" to "fortunately".
What I meant was that I felt fortunate in having minority contemporaries by my side while I was leading minorities.If "leading minorities in the military" was a "fortunate" experience, I have to assume you led people who were capable and competent and completed the mission successfully.
