I have looked through the USMA website and this forum, but can't seem to find any answers to a few questions that I have. I looked at some of the entering profiles of different classes, and I see that it shows the number of students accepted who have participated in a varsity sport. Below that, it says "Letter Winner." Can someone please tell me what a letter winner is? Is community service a factor in being accepted into West Point? My school handbook says that a student must have a minimum of 50 community service hours to graduate. Would West Point prefer to accept students with a greater amount? If an applicant isn't accepted into West Point, is he/she guaranteed a spot to West Point Prep school?
