    I'm curious, how likely is it to be denied entrance into USMA but receive an appointment to MAPS at the same time? Like is there some margin between acceptance into the academy and complete denial of ones application? Also if anyone knows of where USMAPS class profiles like that of those found on the USMA website can be viewed that would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    USMAPS and USMA are two very different animals. An applicant does not apply to MAPS they must be recommended by the RC and you must be deemed academically DQ'd. There are no stats about class profile of USMAPS.

    If you are considering a prep program, please look at the civilian prep resources that are available. NWP, NMMI, and other really good schools with good track records are available. Please research them to find your best fit.

    Some Prep Schools are college extensions others are not. NWP you study a semester in the mountains of California then you spend a semester at a local JC or college. MMI I didn't mention earlier has college credit. You just need to do your research and see if its a good option. Most of the kids who attend want to polish up to look better at attending a SA. They do not accept ROTC scholarships

    I understand. She is looking at The Citadel, since they take the ROTC scholarship, but we also think she may still get USMA or USMAPS. She is just working on securing Plan C and D.
