For many years numerous government agencies have questioned the high attrition rates experienced at the three DOD service academies--West Point, Annapolis and the USAF Academy. Both the external environment and internal atmosphere at each academy have been examined. Since the overall application rates are high and the total pool of young men and women interested in admission continues to rise however, the quality of the applicant pool itself has, to some extent only been superficially examined. This individual research project attempts to review admission requirements for the three DOD service academies and for the three ROTC scholarship programs as they relate to the decreasing high school graduating population. The conclusions recommend further refinement of the data in specific areas where commonality exists.
