WEST POINT

Find out why Jeanne Hull declined admissions to several Ivy League institutions to attend West Point Military Academy.

Captain Jeanne Hull: My name is Captain Jeanne Hull and I'm a proud graduate of the West Point class of 2000. I think West Point is right for people who want an experience that is beyond what a normal college education would give you. I applied to three or four ivy League schools and I was admitted to all of them. But the academics here are just as rigorous as any ivy league institution. On top of that you have physical fitness requirements and you have military leadership requirements that give you leadership, managerial and interpersonal skills that you're not going to get from a regular college education.
Cadet Adrienne Rolle: To be challenged on a regular basis both physically, mentally, emotionally, that is something that I really wanted to partake in.
Lieutenant Colonel Ike Wilson: West Point gives you day-to-day 24/7 opportunity to test yourself, to rise to the challenge and to frankly, lead.
Cadet Seth Johnson: I just feel that West Point is a fantastic opportunity and think that I've definitely changed a lot. I feel that I can overcome anything I put my mind to.
Captain Jeanne Hull: West Point has a very unique history in that every single graduate have participated in serving the country since the institution was founded.
Cadet Adrienne Rolle: What we become a part of here is like nothing else I've seen on a college campus.
Captain Jeanne Hull: When you're here, you are part of a living, breathing museum. You are doing things that have been done at this institution for the past two hundred and some odd years now. Everywhere that you go there are reminders about the people that went before you and things that they've accomplished and that's something that you don't get from most other places.
Captain Jeanne Hull: As a Soldier, I am responsible for the national defense. As a scholar, my mind has been honed and prepared to deal with a variety of challenges and a variety of problems.
Cadet Adrienne Rolle: That's what West point is about; the combination of leadership and knowledge. That's really what it takes to be a good Officer and I think that's something that distinguishes West Point from universities or other academies.
Captain Jeanne Hull: I feel extremely fortunate because very early on in my career I had the opportunity to work with General David Petraeus as an Intelligence Officer and I think that role suits me far better than being the person that's out front making the decisions. But at the same time I also appreciate the impact that I'm having on those decisions.
Colonel Michael Meese: Literally Captain Hull is making decisions and providing analysis that is affecting United States Policy. It's critical that those decisions be made by intelligent leaders and that's why we try to prepare them well here at West Point.
Lieutenant Colonel Ike Wilson: We create and have created the leaders of our nation.
Captain Jeanne Hull: Having a West Point education and being a West Point graduate is somethiing that distinguishes me from everyone else. It's something I will have on my resume and in my toolkit for the rest of my life.
