Is anyone familiar with the likelihood of getting accepted into USMA from VMI? I understand that grades and leadership activities are taken heavily into account in the application process. If I were to attend VMI for a year and reapply, would I have a good chance if I have no new leadership activities than when I was in high school? It seems like it'd be difficult to have a leadership role while undergoing the rat system in addition to doing well academically. By the way, I understand that I should only attend a college if I can see myself there for four years, and VMI is definitely an a school that I'd be willing to attend. I admire its difficulty and honor code, and would be happy at both USMA and VMI, since becoming an officer is my ultimate goal.
