I came to NMMI when I was fifteen, with no direction in my life, and left three years later at eighteen having gained numerous valuable skills, great lifelong friends, and set on a path to success. The school has been on a noticeable decline over the years and has changed significantly from what it used to be. My first year attending the Institute was also the current Commandant's first year leading the school. Since his time there, he has brought change, and some have blamed him for the school's decline, however, he has done a fine job considering the different generation of cadets that call the school theirs today. While the school is not the same as it used to be a decade ago, if one takes it seriously and makes the most out of their time there, the school will set them up for success. Rest in peace Major Cortez and Ryan Dement.

NMMI...
-Sucks as a RAT (someone who is there for the first time)
-Gets better but still sucks as an old cadet (simply because the environment is draining).

There are power hungry cadets that could be 5 years younger than you, (remember you are going to school with tiny freshman kids at the least), and just as well cadets that are chill and could care less about the military environment, (people such as me).

Food is mediocre. Rooming is ok (hopefully you like your roommate). Teachers are cool, I haven't had a teacher that I've particularly "hated".

Other than that if youre a try hard kid who doesn't like life outside of NMMI, then this school is for you. Other than that, this school sucks, its not fun 90% of the time.

BUT THE FRIENDSHIPS YOU MAKE ARE FOREVER! :]
New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) is an excellent way to challenge yourself in many different ways. You will be challenged mentally, physically, academically, and much more. You will polish you time management with the strict and demanding schedule and balance your academics on top of Corps events, positions, and responsibilities. Your academics and Corps activities will be demanding as any other affiliation you have whether it be sports, SROTC, or clubs/activities. I have learned much about myself and the people around me and how I react in multiple stress level situations. I have grown as a person, leader, and academic achiever. I have kept my grades and been invited into Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) which also provides excellent scholarship opportunities for my future academic endeavors. I came to NMMI for the SROTC early commissioning program (ECP). NMMI is an excellent opportunity to challenge yourself in multiple ways.
