Top ranked academics, taught in a structured environment by military officers. Academics alone makes it better than the Naval Academy. Given the history and honor of the institution, despite the lack of a "party scene", this is one of the best places in the world for an undergraduate degree. Gaureenteed job in the Army! Cool swords and rings and stuff.

The United States Military Academy at West Point is billed as the world's premier leadership institution for good reason; enrolling here was absolutely one of the best decisions of my life. Above all, my time at West Point helped develop me into the leader I wanted to be. I learned how to lead subordinates, how to lead peers, how to struggle through adversity and how to never give up. The values taught at the US Military Academy have stood the test of time, and the accomplishments of it's distinguished graduates speak volumes about its power to continue to turn out quality leaders who make an impact on the world.
If you want an institution that develops you into a leader and prepares you for success throughout the rest of your life, West Point is an outstanding choice. If you strive for excellence and have a vision that extends beyond tomorrow, West Point may be for you. It's a constant mental and physical challenge, but well worth it for those who can complete the program. For those wanting the ultimate party scene, look elsewhere.
