Service Academy/ROTC Preparedness



Applying to a Service Academy or ROTC is considerably more involved than applying to a typical college or university. We help to manage the many steps and important deadlines in this process.


Interview Process.

Each qualified applicant must complete a personal interview with an Academy official or ROTC officer. This leadership interview is a critical step in the application process. We help prepare the student for this interview.


A nomination does not guarantee an appointment to an Academy; however, no appointment can be offered without one. We educate the candidate on how to be best prepared for this process.



A candidate's performance on all admissions factors combine to create his/her overall competitive standing among prospective students. We educate and prepare the student on each factor.
