    According to the 2016 OML guidelines PMS Experience based observations account for 25% of the score evaluated after the junior year. Does anyone know specifically how the PMS calculations are made such as number of points for each attribute or is it more subjective based on the PMS observations?

    Also, in academic outcomes 4 points are given for academic discipline and obviously STEM majors and the type of STEM are awarded more points. But are graduating with Honors cum laude added in this computation? Probably not since the GPA is only calculated thru the junior year.

    Thanks in advance!

    This isn't the official answer, but I would say, in my experience it is up to the PMS. A PMS may just sit in his/her office and decide who they like best. The PMS and staff may sit in a room and discuss the senior class before making a decision, and a PMS may use a bunch of metrics to quantify the decision. I would encourage a cadet not to worry about the process and only worry about the things they can control (grades, PT). Someone has to be #1 and someone has to be at the bottom. And probably someone is going to be disappointed and think they were screwed.

    And on your other question...graduation academic honors won't factor in.

    Thanks to both of you. I found a little better power point with some more data:
