What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
Start EARLY. Maintain top-notch grades and really dig in to the SAT, take it as many times as you can, the academy allows Super-Scoring, so only your best scores on each section are taken into account. Be a LEADER in your respective clubs, sports, organizations and communities, also, strive for a nomination; only those that are nominated by a congressman are considered for admissions.
Felix from San Juan, PR
Apply early and do your best. Play sports, be active in the community, keep your grades in tip top shop, obtain leadership roles in the clubs you're a part of. Try to make a difference. They care about a whole cadet not just one that is a gold academic egg or a D-1 athlete that doesn't have a 3.0 gpa.
Carla from FL
mke sure you have a well rounded application with not only one thing or another and make sure you reach out to your congressman or woman for your nomination as soon as you are positive that you want to apply to the school.
benjamin from newark, de
APPLY EARLY!!! make sure you want to be an Army officer above all else in considering USMA.
Josiah from O'Fallon, IL
Prospective candidates should truly dig down deep within him or herself and make the mature decision to see if it is what he or she really wants out of life. So long as the prospective candidate displays true caring, he or she will gain acceptance. The U.S. Military Academy searches for a well rounded applicant, therefore, focus on developing your social, physical, and academic equally.
Alexander from Missoula, MT
DON'T PROCRASTINATE!!! I can't stress that enough. If you are serious about a service academy then you should get things in as early as possible. This means starting before the end of your Junior year. By the time you start Senior year, you should either already be done or almost finished with your application.
Taylor from Chesapeake, VA
Get all applications done early as well as scheduling doctors appointments and getting nominational packets together long before the deadline because you don't want to have to have your fingers crossed whether applications will reach the Congressman and other nominational sources in time.
Andrew from Las Cruces, NM
