Yes it is hard to get into West Point. Yes you will have to work your butt off to get in.
I suggest you go to this website: http://admissions.usma.edu/startyoung.cfm

this explains the academics, athletics and leadership which you are expected to bring to the application process.

Yes, getting in is extremely tough.

Graduating is even tougher.

I'm what you could call a USMA washout, I withdrew my application after getting nomination, I still wanted a bit of a college feel rather than the straight out academy. It is a long hard road, but at the end is a set of shiny gold bars that will open up infinite opportunities for you. If being an exemplary officer is something you want, USMA is the place for you. You will not find any source of commission (ROTC, Green To Gold, Academy, OCS, Etc.) easy to attain. But in the immortal words of Woody Hayes:

"Anything easy, ain't worth a damn!"

Maybe this thread can be moved to the USMA forum since it would be on-topic there, and our OP should take a look through other threads before posting this question. THAT is what makes for clutter.
