    Just out of complete curiosity, what are the chances of someone who goes to a very prestigious high school that is very similitar USMAPS and is well known for their alumni serving in the military and becoming officers through West Point to go to USMAPS with a C+ to B- average, High SAT scores (2100/2400), a resume stacked with extracurriculars where leadership plays a huge role (JROTC, Civil Air Patrol, and being a class representative), and has the support of a famous retired detective and his senior Army instructor (along with a JROTC nomination)?

    Very little if this person is academically qualified. Standardized test scores weighs more on academica qualification, so with high SAT scores more likely to be academically qualified than not qualifed. USMAPS is for academically disqualified candidates, by default. West Point won't risk a USMAPS slot with medically disqualified candidate. West Point do grant wavier for failing CFA.

    Might get a civilian prep school offer.
