4 College Sophomore

Academics: VMI has a hard academic curriculum that has to be balanced with our other duties such as military and athletic duties.

5 College Senior

Academics: engineering programs at VMI are the best. You can't hide from learning the material because of the student to professor ratio. They make sure you know the material or you will fail. There are no curves on grades so be prepared to have a lower GPA than high school. I know under grad schools like VA Tech who have curves throughout their programs so don't expect the same. You will also get a job if you graduate

4 College Freshman

Academics: Good academics, not too much work, but the teachers will be retiring in a couple of years.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Good overall, but soon to be new teachers all together.

3 College Senior

Academics: Academics are tough considering the military life style.
