Jenny Goesch is Accepted into West Point

February 26, 2021

The United States Military Academy, also referred to as West Point, is one of five academies across the nation that train cadets for 47 months in four different categories: academics, physical fitness, character, and military training. If you are accepted into the academy, you attend on a full scholarship with a salary if you work a minimum of eight years, with five being in active duty.The application process is very different from a typical college application. You must be qualified academically, physically, and medically. Jenny started her preliminary application during the winter of her junior year. This was basic information to see if she would be competitive in the process. At the end of junior year, Jenny was deemed competitive and could continue her application. Throughout the next few months she submitted transcripts, ACT scores, essays, a character evaluation, activity records, a fitness assessment, and teacher evaluations, as well as had an interview. She also had to be nominated by a member of congress which was a seperate application process similar to the academy's. She filled out these applications and completed interviews for both of our senators and our district congressman. The last part of the application process was to go through medical exams which had to be done at Department of Defense approved clinics. Jenny completed her application in October, was determined medically qualified in December, and received her appointment in January. She officially accepted the offer on the 22nd!“While at USMA, I hope to major in Mechanical Engineering. During my first class year(senior year) I will be given a branch to commission into after graduation.” Jenny says. “After my four years at West Point, I can see myself serving past the eight year commitment and making a career in the military. I am excited to see what opportunities and experiences the future holds!” Congratulations Jenny Goesch!! - Interviewed and written by Rachel Matthews
