More information about the application and nomination process can be found at the USMA Prospectus page.
See the links below for specifics.
Each candidate must:
be 17 but not yet 23 years of age by July 1 of year admitted. (The increase in maximum age is a result of a recent change to Title X, U.S. Code.)
be a U.S. citizen at time of enrollment (exception: foreign students nominated by agreement between U.S. and another country).
not be pregnant or have a legal obligation to support a child or children
Each candidate should have:
an above-average high school or college academic record.
strong performance on the standardized American College Testing (ACT) Assessment Program Exam or the College Board Admissions Testing Program Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT).
West Point uses the results of your ACT/SAT, high school class rank, and the recommendations of your faculty to determine your academic qualification. Consideration is also given to the types of courses taken and the percentage of students from your school who attend four-year colleges after high school, as reported by the Educational Testing Service (ETS).
You should apply for a nomination from one or more of the listed sources during the Spring of your junior year. You must obtain a nomination in order to compete for admission to the Military Academy. Cadetships are allocated by law to the Vice President, members of Congress, congressional delegates from Washington, D.C., the Virgin Islands, and Guam, Governors of Puerto Rico and American Samoa, and to the Department of the Army (service-connected nomination). Nominating officials may select up to 10 young people to compete for each cadetship vacancy they may have. At a minimum, most candidates are eligible for a Congressional nomination from their local Congressional Representative, two United States Senators and the Vice President of the United States. Apply for a nomination from each source for which you are eligible.Source(s): http://admissions.usma.edu/Prospectus/step_01.cfm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Point

it is a troublesome college to get into. you want to have solid SAT rankings, and a minimum of the right 20% of your type. you want letters of advice from particular instructors, coaches, and your congressman. There are caps on what number seats would properly be held through scholars from an similar district. that is troublesome to assert about the middle aspect. examine with a recruiter, they are going to be in a position to furnish you a more beneficial advantageous theory of how a lot it ought to carry you again. don't be anxious about it, that is not any longer like the flicks they are going to pay for you to bypass to med college, yet you need to be a standout student and nail the MCATs. in case you do not get into the point, imagine about doing the reserves and ROTC. you'll have more beneficial doorways open with a lot less regulations, yet you basically isn't getting an similar pay examine once you're in college.
