  • WEST POINT ADMISSIONS/OPPORTUNITIES BRIEFING

    Posted by Karen Talbot on 4/28/2022 2:20:00 PM

    Dear Parents and Students,

    The New Jersey West Point Field Force is hosting a United States Military Academy virtual meeting for rising freshman, sophomores, and juniors.  The virtual briefing is scheduled on May 12th at 7:00 PM. 

     We are a volunteer organization assisting students in their application process to West Point including providing relevant information regarding the many opportunities at West Point.  In the past, our members have met with your staff and students to update them on the Academy and admissions process. 

    We are hoping your staff will participate by attending and by spreading the word to your students by posting the attached PDF.  

     To many educators, West Point is often seen as off limits to potential Candidates.  Yes, the competition is keen but there are ways to help our young people in finding the path that best suits them, including a career as a leader in today’s Army.  We are including a link to an admissions blog which answers many questions as well as PDF document which covers important facts about West Point.  Some of the items we cover are:

    • Admission’s Blog.  The admissions blog will answer many of your questions and give you an idea what graduates will be doing after graduation.  We strongly recommend you check out the blog. 
      • The Journey Continues - stories of recent graduates 3 to 4 years from graduation and what they have been doing. This is in the process of being finalized.  All branches will be covered.
      • AP Credits and What they mean at West Point
      • Descriptions of each year at the Academy
      • The Scholars Program - Post Graduate Scholarships
      • The Center for Enhanced Performance
      • Info on the CFA, candidate fitness assessment
      • The Honor Code
      • Things to know about choosing a major
      • SLE – the Summer Leadership Experience

     

    • The large number of humanities and social science majorsat West Point.  It is more than an engineering school.
    • The CORE curriculumwhich includes composition, literature, 2 semesters of a foreign language, US Government and History, Economics, Mathematics, Cyber and Science.
    • All-expense paid internshipslike working at the National Security Council in Washington, visiting London to watch Shakespeare’s plays, going to Oxford to study philosophy, working at RAND Corp, Council of Economic Advisors, Goldman Sacks, A T Kearney, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, State Department, Manhattan DA’s Office, and the World Bank.
    • $27 million allocated for cadet researchsupported by 26 research centers.
    • The West Point Graduate Scholarship Programwhich prepares cadets to compete for fourteen prestigious scholarships including the Rhodes, Marshall, and Fulbright programs.  Last year West Point had 40 graduates win these scholarships. 
    • The four pillars of the CHARACTER DEVELOPMENTprogram not available at any other college.  Character, Academic, Physical and Military.  At West Point, Cadets will learn and incorporate the ideals of loyalty, respect, integrity, courage, and honor in their daily life.  They will learn failure can make them stronger.  Going outside their comfort zone helps them grow.  Character is relevant.  Grit makes the difference in success in life.  Finally, the concept of ‘never, ever quit’ becomes part of their DNA
    • Participation in one of the 130 Cadet Clubsincluding Academic, Sports, Hobby, Military, Religious and Support Clubs.
    • Full four-year tuition ROTC scholarshipsavailable at over 1100 colleges and universities.
