KPmom2013 is right. My DS did a year at MMI and it was great. (Not at the time for him...but in the long run it really helped.) We were under the impression that if he "got good grades" that was all that was needed. Not exactly. Your DS will need another nomination and retake the SATs. MMI and USMMA admissions will help with all of the "paperwork." We were continually told "not to worry"...that as long as his grades were good and he didn't get into trouble, he'd be okay. Well, we worried and the waiting (for official word) was stressful. I think there were 14 sponsored USMMA SAPs at MMI when my DS attended and 13 made it to USMMA. (the only one that didn't failed some classes.) The bad thing about MMI is there is nothing to do in Marion, Alabama. The good news is that means they will have plenty of time to study. I'll tell you, the same that I was told....as long as he keeps his nose clean and studies hard, he'll be okay and join the USMMA class of 2022. But we're parents...you are going to stress for another whole year! Good luck!In just a month our son will be a sponsored prep for the USMMA at MMI. If he already had a nomination for the USMMA does he need to get it again? Also does he need to take the ACT/SAT again?
