  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    It is very difficult to get in. I am not just talking about the academic portion. You have to be physically fit. I am working hard to get in shape while I still have the chance. For you ladies out there with an interest in the academy, make sure you are eating healthy and exercise regularly.Research the requirements based on you age. You need a minimum of 57 push-ups in one minute. You need to complete a mile in 7 minutes and 30 seconds in order to be considered for this school. Work hard and good luck.

    Make sure you do your research and actually know what this place is about. Many students apply because of the prestige and actually don't know that it is a MILITARY academy first followed my academics.

    If you don't like being controlled and told what to do, this place isn't for you. If you don't like being away from home for too long, this place isn't for you. If you hate the snow, this place isn't for you. If you want to party every other day, this place isn't for you. If you want to have a fun freshman year, this place isn't for you. If you don't have at least a 3.5 GPA and score over a 30 on your ACT and a 1900+ on your SAT, this place isn't for you(the prep school maybe!) If you want to make new friends, start a military career, be an officer in the most elite branch in the world, travel, can deal with he snow, fly planes, jump out of planes, live for 1 week in the wilderness, go through basic, and go through recognition after a crappy freshman year, get $36,0000 as a junior to buy your own car and invest, make on average $600 per month(not freshman year), and want to push yourself to be the best person you could possibly be, then this place is for you.
