One never knows what kind of opportunities might arise from attending USMAPS. A well-known fact is a high percentage of First Captains come from Prep. But you also might get to learn from some remarkable leaders. Some who later in life become icons. For example, Mike Krzyzewski, a.k.a. Coach K, the winningest coach in college history, coached basketball at Prep for two years when it was at FT Belvoir, VA. He just passed his former coach at West Point, Bob Knight, who had been the winningest coach in college basketball. If you are offered the chance to attend Prep, take it. It can lead to good things.
