I am a little bit curious about the Prep schools for all the Service Academies. Does anyone know where I can find info regarding average SATs and GPAs at the various prep schools? How do the prep school students compare academically to those kids accepted directly into the Academies at the end of the 4 dig year? At graduation? Are the costs similar to those at the service academies? Will any credits earned transfer to civ colleges should the cadet-hopeful fail to get a nomination or appointment? Is there any stigma for those kids at the academy who might have been at the prep school the previous year? My feeling on this answer is no, but I could be wrong. Thanks!
