VMI is not for everyone; as you can see from the attrition rate. You need to be strong both physically and mentally. The first year is hard, but the three remaining years are not a cake walk. I love everything about VMI. The friends you make there are the best you'll ever make. When at other schools such as UVA or JMU, VMI guys can come off as arrogant, but they have a reason to be. They've overcome more than "normal" college students to be at their school. The alumni of VMI are the best of any school in the nation. They look after graduates so that a VMI grad is never left out in the cold. The connections you make through VMI will put you at the head of the line for jobs once you get out. This doesn't mean you're guaranteed a great job, it just puts you ahead.
