I have heard good things about the New Mexico Military Institute's Academy Prep Program. Does anyone here have any input? Did they or a loved one go to NMMI?
Sponsored or self prep ? We are heading down to NMMI to check out school for my DS. Open house is 4/27.UPDATE: Today I received an email stating I have a conditional acceptance to NMMI
Joe, from your posts I predict you will make the most of your NMMI opportunity, we’ll see your name in appointment offers for multiple SAs, and you will give back by offering deckplate advice for re-applicants.Update: Turned down from USMMA. I will be attending NMMI this coming year.
My DD was offered an a sponsored prep spot at NMMI for USMMA last year. She received an appointment to USMMA for the class of 2023 and will be headed to KP in a month. My suggestions would be to listen to what Senior Chief says. He was super helpful and literally tells you exactly what you need to do to get your appointment. The reapplication process is a bit different, so trust that Senior Chief knows what he is doing when the timelines don't match with the Academy. Stay out of trouble and keep up with your classes. If you need help with classes ask for it, if the professor's can't help (or don't help the way you need) get an outside tutor asap! Stick with PT and make sure you work on it daily. Being that NMMI is high school, junior college and prep, prepare yourself to have to deal with high school kids getting the whole troop in trouble and having extra PT lol Overall it was a great experience for my DD, she has met some life long friends and will be better prepared for life at the Academy (not to say plebe year will be any easier in the least, but she will somewhat know what to expect) Good Luck to you and enjoy your time at NMMI!UPDATE: Today I received an email stating I have a conditional acceptance to NMMI
If you're flying, it's best to get as much of the listed items as possible. I'm flying out of PA to attend and the only major stuff I am getting in Roswell are the liquids (detergents, cleaners), iron and ironing board, toiletries, and some classroom supplies that make my suitcase over weight limits. Walmart is your best bet if you have one near you, I got a lot of stuff there in an hour or 2 of shopping. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions!So My DS is headed to NMMI next week and we haven't bought a thing.... Anyone have any pointers? We are flying in from across the country and I was thinking we could just buy everything there. Also does he bring his cellphone on the first day and they take it for the first couple of weeks? How long is the indoc period? I have so many questions... LOL. I need some pointers and a way to relax.
