West Point and the Naval Academy are the most egalitarian, meritocratic school in the US. Being daddy's little rich boy or an URM gets you nowhere. West Point highly selective and highly prestigious.

It might give you a slight boost in admissions (read: slight) but the instructors, upperclassmen and your peers will rain punishment and pain down on you if you're perceived as an entitled legacy asshole.

The only schools more prestigous than West Point are HYPS + MIT. Caltech is certainly more prestigous among academics but not the general population. West Point is easily more prestigous than any effette liberal arts college -- Swarthmore, Middlebury, et al.

I think the West Point name may carry a bit further. Again we are dealing in perceptions here. In terms of actual educational experience I think both are on par with West Point.

West Point is not any more prestigious than Hopkins or Georgetown. And definitely not more than Columbia/duke/ Cornell.

Everyone knows Hopkins is way stronger academically than West Point. Just look at their stats and pre-med student body.

Do not confuse academics with prestige. Are you going to seriously make the argument that someone coming out of Hopkins is more accomplished then someone who survived West Point?

Please.

Kelly from the Apprentice 2 went to West Point and defeated Jen Massey from Harvard.

I'm not sure if he's a typical west point grad, though.
