The United States Military Academy is a great place to develop yourself into a scholar, leader, and a person of character. West Point is one of the best universities this nation has to offer (14th among all universities nationwide, and 1st among public schools). The class sizes are generally under 20 and the instructors are always available for individual additional instruction to ensure you succeed. West Point is commonly referred to as the premier leadership academy of the world. Here you will develop yourself into a great leader which will set you up for success later on in the civilian sector.
You are required to serve 5 years as an officer in the army after graduation, but your entire education is free, in fact you are paid to attend. Compared to the college debt that follows many students around their whole lives, 5 years of serving your country is a small price to pay and to many it is seen as a great opportunity.
Overall, USMA is a good school. There are things (sexual misconduct, drugs, alcohol, etc) that happen behind the scenes that the school tries to not show in order to maintain an imagine. However, if one ignores them, or avoids those situation, it has one of the best educations out there.
USMA is an incredible school. The academics are best of the best, and it is a great place to get into and stay in shape. However, only those serious about attending and serving in the Army on active duty should apply. There is a multitude of clubs available for membership that provide outlets for just about any student. All students participate in organized sports in one way or another, and the environment is extremely competitive.
West Point does a phenomenal job preparing future officers. While numerous challenges are presented, the resources available to students are more than sufficient to provide an atmosphere which encourages growth and development. The facilities, staff, and faculty all set the standard of superior performance.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for United States Military Academy is 9%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
My advice to you is to think about what you really want out of life. Do you know who you are and what you can do? If not, going to West Point is the best decision of your life. Even if you get injured and it doesn't work out, the year you will spend there will change and shape you for the rest of your life. Do not be afraid to leap out into the world because no matter what happens, you know who you are and that you will succeed at whatever you put your mind to.
The best America has to offer. It is difficult and not for the faint hearted because we lead our country and win its wars.
I consider the hyperfocus on the intercollegiate football team to be a major downside of West Point.
That the work load was going to be outrageous.
A career oriented college preparing us to defend our country.
We are all students that are commissioning into the Army, and we help each other to achieve that goal without comprimising our integrity.
The best thing about USMA is thfact that I get to join the officers corps after i graduate. This will set me up for a successful future in many ways and it will also allow me to serve my country.
You need to be a humble person to attend this school because you will mess up something at some point.
The lack of sleep and free time. The school puts a lot of requirments on its students and its sometimes hard to get everything done but that is the whole point they want to put you in a hard situation adn see how you react
Small classes, price, availability of teachers
It is one of the only schools in the country which provides you with not only a good education but also leadership experience.
Teachers at the United States Military Academy are phenomenal. Many use their experiences in the Army and as previously deployed soldiers to connect well-organized lessons to what students may expect upon commissioning into the big Army.
This school is not for individuals who are not seeking a high ranking position in the military (or as a CEO for a major corporation). Along with rigorous schedules and requirements, there are numerous opportunities involving travel around the world in order to build on the skills West Point builds in its cadets. I highly recommend this school for hardworking people willing to give of themselves for their country.
