Me vs West Point (or College as a whole)

:iconnarcisistwaffle:
NarcisistWaffle Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
College applying is hard. Really hard. Especially finding one with a Corps of Cadets or something of the sort. Because I'm tossing up either considering military or, in the case an ROTC thing isn't for me, studying for something that fits me. And I'm scared for the future.

The problem is and what gets me mad/scared, is that I'm an idiot with a 2.8 GPA. Finding a good ROTC college or something will not be easy, let alone getting accepted. So I'm grumpy and I'm losing it.

Why thank you.
And I gotta ask how you get the permanent Premium? (It has nothing to do with the forum but more on my curiosity.)

i helped train the cadets at west point by shooting my M4 at them. they seem really smart and learn fast about being the future leaders their supposed to be. i've also seen what the actual west point campus looks like and the class they take. im pretty sure they have good courses there and training.

I did not understand a word of that.

It's worth noting that your life doesn't end if you don't go to college. I'm sure over there experience is still worth more than qualification so if everything falls apart, don't even bother with college. Get some work experience down you instead. There's no reason to be scared over applying to college.

west point isn't the ONLY college with ROTC. lots of state colleges have it too, and i've seen some pretty obscure ones that have it.

If you want to go to a military academy like West Point, Annapolis, or Colorado Springs, you know that you need a Congressional recommendation, right? You can't just apply and get accepted like other schools.

But yeah. Shoulda studied more.

You could do reserves instead of ROTC. Unless you're really gunning for an officer position, which is extremely competitive.

I had a 2.0 GPA and it only stopped me from getting into the really exclusive colleges. A 2.0 is a C average, so it's considered pretty well, average.

Tennessee. I had a 2.0 GPA out of high school, but scored a 28 on the ACT. I ended up going to community college because it was cheaper.

Approximately.
West Point demands like a 3.6 and a letter from the Congressman.
At least some of these schools don't demand GPAs. :lmao: Still need assistance to be able to get in a school with a Corps of Cadets or something.
