Student, New Mexico Military Institute, Class of 2017,
The New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) is a fantastic prep school for the Academies. The odds of getting in to West Point, or the Coast Guard Academy goes up from 1/10, to 4/10. Nearly to fifty percent. I have often heard people saying they're at NMMI for a better education. NMMI has great course work; from Beginner Algebra, to Calculous and above. The third most popular reason for attending NMMI is for physical fitness. The cadre push you hard here. They won't accept anyone saying 'I can't do it', or 'It's too much'. They get down in the mud and sweat with you until you've completed your task. Often times you'll be completely drained.
