Should I give West Point another shot?

Now that I am ending my second year of community college (technically a sophomore but will probably graduate within 2-3 years from a university) I contemplate on giving West Point another go at it, prior to this I was all gung-ho however my SAT/ACT scores weren't up to USMA standards and I got denied. I know there are other ways to commission as well (VTCC is an option I might consider especially since I am from VA) yet a part of me is still clinging on to West Point because its where I've wanted to go since 11th grade (never applied then because I wasn't nearly as qualified as I was last year). At this point I don't know whether I should take it or leave it because I will be doing 4 more years of schooling to get a Bachelors; and what gets to me is the fact that my youngest brother, who is now a freshman in high school, will be a sophomore in college by the time I graduate at the age 25 (which is pretty young, an age where some get Master Degrees) with the class of 2018--my original class was supposed to be 2015
