Hey everyone, I initially applied for the USMA Class of 2013. I was not accepted. I just have a few questions, and then I also would like some advice on what I should do when I re-apply for the class of 2014. My first question is when you are at the academy, how does the seperation system work for ACADEMICS only. How many classes can you fail? Do you have to retake failed courses? Are there courses that you must take your plebe year? For instance, is everyone in calculas 1 their first year? Now, as for the brilliant advice everyone here is going to give me... =) Here are my cridentials: I will be attending the University Of Toledo this fall, on a four-year Army ROTC scholarship. I will be participating in Ranger challenge and Pershing Rifles. My GPA in high school was a 3.3. I graduated 75 out of 400. I was in Junior ROTC in high school for all four years, I graduated as the Battalion Command Sergeant Major. I was in the Kick Off Mentor Program. I was on the Raider Team, Drill team, and Track and Field in high school. I was the leader of the raider and drill team for two years each. Recieved plenty of awards to include: National APFT ranking of 18th for the 2008-2009 school year. State Raider individual APFT champion The team I lead was 2nd in the entire country. I have the national physical fitness award, as well as a consistent 300 APFT score. (pushups, situps, 2-mile run) I took the ACT: MAth- 20 Science reasoning- 20 English- 28 Reading- 23 So what should I do while in college to get into the academy this time around? On another note, should I join the national guard while in college? Would that help my application? ANY advice you guys can give me on getting in would be so appreciated you don't even know.
