Only on an exchange program. West Point is there to train soldiers to become officers in the US Army, not anyone else's. So they may take a cadet from another country's military academy for a semester or a year, in exchange for sending one of their West Point cadets to that country's academy.

From the US service academies? Yes; you serve as an officer for a minimum number of years (usually four years of active duty and four years of reserve duty, but that might vary depending on what military occupation you go into) in exchange for a free college education.

That's not necessarily the case with the other schools (VMI, NMMI, etc.). Those are private schools that may offer ROTC to their cadets, but you otherwise have to pay tuition just like other private universities.

I would tell you Norwich university. I have been accepted there for fall 2011 into the class of 2015 and I honestly love the place. So I recommend Norwich but me being a future Rook might make my opinion a little one sided xD but I saw alot of people recommending VMI and The Citadel so deffinetly check thoughts schools out

You could apply for the one of the ROTC scholarships which will pay most if not all of your schools then when you graduate you will get a commission as an officer in what ever branch the scholarship was from

VMI has a very strong network thing going on... draws a lot of cadets that way.
