Hi everyone, I was fortunate enough to have been appointed to USMA and accepted by MIT. However, I'm struggling to make a decision and would welcome any advice. I know I want to serve in the military, and both options would give me that opportunity. It seems like West Point offers more opportunities for military training than most ROTC programs, but I like the academic opportunities that MIT offers and their greater choice in majors. I've gotten to know fellow prospective MIT students through an accepted students group chat and have a general sense of the culture there. While I like the rigorous environment of West Point, I also have concerns about fitting in there as I'm unfamiliar with the culture (I haven't visited USMA yet and probably won't get a chance due to the COVID-19 outbreak). Many of my family and friends think I should choose MIT, but part of me is unwilling to let go of the possibility of attending USMA. I'm extremely grateful to have the opportunity to make this choice and any advice is appreciated!
