Hello, I was wondering how the United States Military Academy stands next to Harvard, Yale, Princeton and Stanford. The academic program is second to none there and USMA ranks fourth in the number of Rhodes Scholars. So, I was wondering if you could give me your reputation.

I certainly can't argue with you about the quality of the academic program at West Point. However, there's a price to paid in the form of a mandatory military commitment after graduation and a lot of highly disciplined, sometimes rigidly traditional behavioral requirements while you're a cadet.
It takes a special kind of person to attend and succeed at a military academy. If you're that kind of person, then I say investigate your potential. If you have any doubts at all, though, do deeper research and contrast the USMA's program and total time commitment with traditional, civilian college options.
