    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.

    If you are interested in this Institution, start early! Start as early as you possibly can because this college is relentless in it's process for finding possible candidates, even when you have become a candidate you are only in a smaller large pool of people. It is a very rigorous program and it demands you to be on top of everything and willing to give it your all in the process.

    - Your ACT/SAT scores are the easiest thing for you to change. - Be physically fit before coming here (be able to run 4 miles and meet the physical fitness test minimums) - Have as much fun as you can in high school because your freshmen year will have less freedom

    Do your flutter kicks. Have great memorization skills. You will get beat, but have fun with it. Don't let the cadre get to you, because they aren't going to be like that for a very long time. Pray for sophomore year.

    Before you get here, make sure you are in good athletic shape. Make sure you are ready for the huge commitment as well, deciding to attend this school isn't a decision you should take lightly.
