Hello,
I am PFC Segovia, and I am currently in IET studying at DLI. I have recently completed all of my medical and physical requirements for the West Point application and received a Letter of Assurance (LOA). I am now awaiting my Letter of Admission. My question is should I continue on the enlisted route and try to obtain a G2G scholarship/program offer?

If the end goal is to be a commissioned officer, don’t turn down a more sure route for a less sure one.

PFC (Join to see) I agree with 2LT (Join to see) . If you are that far, ride it out. If it doesn't pan out then try the ROTC Green to Gold Route.

Often I express my opinion that enlisted personnel should take ROTC or OCS route to a commission. In your case, PFC (Join to see), I say go for the USMA appointment. It sounds like you're well down that road. The major benefits of West Point are a completely free four-year college education, opportunity to learn from a highly respected academic staff, concentrated leadership training, and a "leg up" on many of your peers after you're commissioned. This may be the ultimate good deal.

It depends on what type of college experience that you want to have. Service academies are prestigious, but have very rigid rules and insular culture. Green to Gold normally means ROTC at a civilian college, but you must have personal self-discipline.
