VMI is an amazing place to go to college. I really enjoy the military lifestyle and also wanted to get a degree to become an officer in the military. VMI has many opportunities for cadets and new students to contract and apply for the military. However, if you don't want to be in the military, but you do want that lifestyle and help improve your skills in leadership and time management, VMI is the place for you. You will be able to meet many different people from many backgrounds, and have experiences that your friends and family will never get to experience. I highly recommend VMI to anyone.
It is great school for both academics and discipline. The skills learned at VMI can be applied in both military or civilian world, and put the students ahead in both leadership and integrity. VMI teaches how to time manage like no other college in America. Cadets here learn how to do get work done quickly and never lacking in quality.
Virginia Military Institute is a brotherhood. There are tough days and there are great days but no matter what you have someone else who has been in the exact situation as you. The classes are small and the teachers engage with everyone and make themselves very available for additional help. The school teaches you more than just academics but what it takes to be successful and how to admire/respect the little things in life. VMI may be small but it makes a huge impact on your life. You learn to become a leader and you don't have to commission into the military at graduation.
This is literally the toughest school in the nation. At VMI you will find the military life mixed with the educational life mixed with extracurricular activities in a blend not seen on any other college campus. The Ratline at VMI continues to be a case study in professional behavior and character growth that rivals the training regimens of the Academies. If you want your degree to carry the weight it's supposed to, then challenge yourself; attend the Virginia Military Institute.

The mean girls are amateur hour compared to the VMI cadre! Do not waste energy on the caddy comments of silly high school girls. Their words mean nothing. Your future will show you that in your darkest hour you can pick yourself up, fall again and then fall again, but you will never quit. You have goals to be a United States Marine. You will learn to prioritize studying while balancing the rigors of VMI. Believe in yourself! You will achieve at the college level because you are meant to accomplish your goals. You will make lifelong friendships.
very conservertive school that has small classroom sizes and promotes interpersonal connections and respect for others.
A fun engaging group with similar views but different ideas.
The short sleep schedule.
The extent of the Rat line.
The punishments for some things are too harsh in relation to the action. One week of confinement is not warrented for being 1 minute late to class.
VMI is known for its spartan-like living conditions and the silver tongued upper classmen who appear out of thin air to motivate and guide you in following the 175 year old traditions of right and wrong by loudly encouraging you in your face ...and also attend classes that may apply to your major.
It's the only school I know of where the freshmen are all called rats and have shaved heads.
VMI is the worst place to be at, but the best place to be from. As a cadet you suffer physically and mentally. The rigors of cadet life are around every corner. However, life as a VMI alumni is unbelievable. VMI graduates are taken on faith everywhare as honorable men and women of integrity. VMI gives its graduates a great life post graduation, so graduates are know to be extremely loyal to VMI, and often times give back to the Institute. VMI is second only to Harvard for average amount of money given back per alumnus.
A person that wants to take the lonely road, a person that wants to serve their country. A leader that wants to be forged and shaped to exceed their potential. Strong both physically and sholastically.
It can physically, mentally and emotional tear you apart, but if you are strong mentally and fight for what you want (not physically) you can do it. But only do it if you want to.
Someone who does not know what they are getting in to, and not willing to work incredibly hard.
