Good morning everyone, I hope you’re all well. I’m a reapplicant to the academy whose browsed the forums a lot in the past without an account, but I need some insight on my academic situation. I’m a contracted cadet and 4-year national scholarship winner with my ROTC battalion, which is a program I absolutely love being a part of, but I attend a selective and competitive school within the Patriot League. I had some trouble transitioning to college and balancing the life of ROTC and activities with academics, and thus the latter suffered a bit. I’m enrolled in five classes, four of which I’m confident in my performance, but one of them I’ve missed too much to the point where the highest grade I can receive is pretty low. Because of this, I’m likely going to withdraw from the course and take it next semester, but I’m afraid about how USMA will judge a W on my college transcript when I submit it in late December. If anyone has any insight on this, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
