The average ACT score went from a 29 in just about every area to a 28 flat. (with the ACT writing score average coming up to a 28 and the science dropping to a 27) The percentile of those in the lower scores went up to 3% in some areas! (37 cadets!). Keep in mind there were more applying for the class of 2017, but only by 400 applicants, a minute number in comparison to 11000 Take a moment to review and give your thoughts on why that may be. If anything it seems like competitiveness has been decreasing! Another interesting fact 1205 of the 1223 admitted compete in a varsity sport. (only 18 of those admitted did not have a varsity letter! years past 200+ didn't have varsity sport), those without one better start working toward one! Is it possible that WestPoint is starting to change from academics weighing so much to focusing on athletics and the "whole candidate's" leadership? What do you think of these results. I may try to create some chart or graph to compare the changing results from year to year in all the areas. So what do you think is causing that trend?
