    Guess how much I have to pay for my college education.

    A grand total of $0.00!:hyper:

    I was accepted into the United States Military Academy at West Point! I do owe the army five years of my life, but that's nothing, compared to an education at one of the best schools in the country.

    Just wanted to let out some of my exuberance at getting accepted.:bassist:

    Congrats on getting in. West Point is a pretty intense school. I'm pretty lucky with my financial situation. The university I attend actually pays me $750 a semester......it's a long story.

    Good job!

    I pay 100$ a semester for my college education. Not bad. Quebec has cheap education, I think university is only like 2000$ a semester at McGill, a world renowned university.

    I was at USAFA for one semester on exchange fom Royal Military College of Canada (RMC) when I was there in 2003. We have pretty much the same deal here: free education, owe 5 years.

    I've also met a bunch of guys from USMA as there is a sports weekend between USMA and RMC every year. The big game is the hockey game, but there's a bunch of other sports as well.

    I am truly impressed. That is a venerable and wonderful
    institution, and no less difficult to get into than any
    elite college in the country. They are extremely selective.
    It is quite an honor to be accepted there.

    Graduating from there successfully will bring you respect and
    honor for the rest of your life. Congratulations.

    Welcome to the Long Gray Line.
  13. Damn, good job!! West Point, wow. At the VERY least, you get a damn cool dress uniform.:D

    Rock on

    Unfortunately, I pay oh so much more than $0.00 for my schooling....:(
  18. Way to go, duder!
