I feel like the situation with older cadets/midshipmen is over looked because they are treated like any other cadet. I want to know the experience of one that has graduated from USMA in his or her mid-twenties knowing it took them a decade to get only B/S degree, how their 4 years went for them despite their age--especially for some that have a year or two to go at their civilian colleges (do they ever say "boy I wish I went back?"). Its funny how such a young age is looked at in a different perspective when it comes to graduating and going to school with those relatively younger than you. I wanted to go to USMA since my jr year in high school (2009-2010) however wasn't remotely qualified enough to do so. My only drive to attend west point is really because of the fact that I not only want to commission as an officer but will receive a quality education under military style regulation that will change me into the type of person that can do great things for others.
