Hi I am a current candidate for VMI and USNA class of 2021. Because I live 20 minutes from the academy, I did a CVW and my father is a grad I have had a lot of exposure to the Naval Academy. I don't know much about VMI except from what my boss, a VMI grad, told me. He mostly talked about the rat line. I really believe I would love it there and do well there. I have researched a lot about Cadet life and the rat line and am interested in the challenges I would face if I attend there. Could anyone tell me some similarities and differences of VMI and the Naval Academy?
