I made a post awhile back detailing my situation as a late-game applicant to this board. In essence, I am a highly competitive applicant that made some significant mistakes in timing that led to me receiving a nomination very late and ultimately missing the medical deadline and thus being disqualified. I won't repeat that same post, but know that there was a very high likelihood that I would have been accepted had I been more timely with my materials and more motivated. This estimation does not come from my own judgement, but from that of my state coordinator whom I corresponded with about my application over the phone. She expressed great confidence that I would be a highly competitive re-applicant if I fix my mistakes. I have decided that I want to re-apply to West Point. I plan on opening my application the day after R-Day (I have heard stories of applicants receiving notice literally days before - I'm not that foolishly hopeful, but I want to be 100% sure). Now, the reason that I have the confidence to do this is simple - I will be attending American University on a 4-year ROTC scholarship. It very well might be the case that I end up loving American and the ROTC lifestyle, but I still want to throw my hat in the ring, as I still posses the desire to attend West Point. Of course a lot will change in college and I'll still have the problem of adjusting to the Army lifestyle, but right now I am dead-set on re-applying to West Point. I wish to know if anyone on this forum applied to West Point from an ROTC program and, if so, what their experience was. I understand that I can apply to my local congresswoman, both my state senators (I received my nomination this year from one of my senators; can I reapply to them?) and the vice president, but I am unclear on how the ROTC nomination works. How important are my 8th semester HS transcripts? Should I retake the ACT even if I'm already satisfied with it? What does my timeline look like? I appreciate any help that this forum can offer.
