I am prior service and my concern with going to the prep school is what will happen if I attend and then do not get a appointment to USMA. I know my chances are high if I attend the prep school and I shouldn’t focus on the “what if” but when considering career choices like this id like to explore all possibilities. If I don’t get into West Point after spending a year at the prep school will I have the chance to ETS or do I have to finish the remaining year of my contract(that would seem almost pointless)? If I do have to finish that year will I go back to my old unit? Go to a new one? Stay at USMA stuck on details?
