United States Military Academy at West Point Reviews

All Categories
This academy is not for everyone; however, those interested and willing to serve in the Army for 5 years and excel in leadership roles, are fit, and determined may enjoy it here. The pros: no monetary cost for a bachelor's of science degree from a top school. Monthly stipend of around $200-500. Guaranteed enjoyment following graduation. The cons: military service required. Military training required. Very little free time, rigid and disciplined system. Extremely strict rules and regulations where violation for missed class or other minor offense may result in 5 hours punishment usually conducted in a physical manner such as marching.

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.
