A few months ago I recieved my senatorial nomination for canidacy to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. Well, I was driving home from school today, and on the way home I picked up the mail. When I saw a large envelope addressed to me from West Point, I put the car in park and ripped it open. Inside was my acceptence letter! This has got to be the greatest news that I have ever gotten, seeing as how I have been working towards it for 10 long years.

Thought some of you would like to hear about this...

Its a military academy. One of the hardest schools to get into is Harvard. Getting into military schools isnt that hard these days.

Dude, you wanna try? Of the rougly 12,000 applicants each year, only around 1000 are accepted... After that, fully 1/3 drop out because its too demanding. Maybe getting into the Merchant Marine or Coast Guard Academy is not very hard, but a TRUE military school (Annapolis, Colorado Springs, West Point) is still very difficult.

Just for my information and if you do not mind sharing:

-What were your grades like? (ex. English-A, Sciences-B+, or maybe just give GPA) -What extracurricular activities did you take and how did you do in them? -What did you have to send for applying(anything different then just information regarding you?) -Did you have to apply for the nomination for canidacy?

I know some/all of this information may be very personal to you but for my opinion purposes and to expand my knowledge I hope you do not mind answering them.

I've pondered going to VMI (Virginia Military Institute). But I have another job oppurtunity available to me once I get out of high school so I'll see how that goes first. The school I may go besides VMI offers military science, so I'm stoked about that.
