So I've just gotten my acceptance letter to West Point, and even though I've had my mind set on go to West Point my entire life I'm not so sure........ All my friends who are freshman in college this year are saying how awesome all the parties are at college and girls and everything. I've never been a big partier because of my super strict crazy parents and college was going to be like MY four years of fun without them in my life. Anyways they don't have those crazy parties at West Point and only 12% of kids are girls, so I don't know what I'm going to do. On one hand when I graduate from West Point and serve my 5 years I will have actually made money (instead of the college debt most people have) and I will have pretty much any job in law enforcement, which is what I want to do, open to me because I have a West Point diploma. But I feel like I might be missing out. Everyone says how much they loved high school, but I've hated it because of my parents so I want that college experience but I also want to go to one of the most respected colleges in the world..............
Any thoughts, especially from West Point grads?
