    So there are only two people going to USMAPS from here or USMA hasn't started really giving out USMAPS appointments?

    For those going to West Point Prep- looking for SAT/ACT scores. My DS is putting together a nice HS resume, concerned that standardized test scores could be an issue. Appreciate your thoughts.

    No he's not at this point. He'll join the track team at USMAPS and if he breaks 50 on his 400 then they will look at him.

    Parents, if you are able to show up on R-Day with your Cadet Candidate, I recommend bringing a camera with a telephoto lens, a pair of binoculars, and buying poster board at the hardware store in Highland Falls. Your iPhone camera won’t cut it to find your son or daughter in the “Where’s Waldo” sea of green. Binoculars will help you pinpoint him/her. Male CC’s will have a new “all gone” haircut, and they will have hats on their heads. Female CC’s will have their hair in a bun, and they will have a hat on. For the poster board, you can make a sign so your Cadet Candidate can find you in the stands; it may be a comfort to them to know you’re there. Have a prearranged sign (e.g., Pi, Theta, a red X, a pink check mark) for them to look for. Having their last name waiving around in the stands may bring them unwanted attention near the end of the day. Oh, and umbrellas will work to keep the sun off you until the parade starts. Enjoy!

    Standardized test scores are an issue. Weighed quite heavily in fact. Many things go into their total score but our experience would suggest he carry around a SAT or ACT prep book like a bible and study to improve his test score. Even enroll in a course to improve his score.

    My DS is looking to connect with some USMAPS cadets. He is the only one of his friends going to the prep school at WP. Several of his friends are going to the Academy and to civil prep, but none to USMAPS. His will be a professor at USMA starting in June and we lived there for 5 years when he was younger, so he knows the campus very well. He just wants to know someone at the prep school before he gets there. PM me if you or your DS/DD is interested in connecting with him.

    For those of you attending usmaps class of 2019, do you know if we are expected to reopen an application for the class of 2023 prior to reporting for R day or do we wait until we get there? On a second note, do things such as transcripts, evaluations, and other supplementary information carry over or will we have to redo all of that? I know I will need to rewrite candidate statements and complete the CFA but I’m talking more along the lines of the information that hasn’t changed
