Fox Reports Reception Day at West Point

This will show you what it looked like for West Point new cadets, really cadet candidates, on their first day in. We didn't find Waldo, I mean, Kirk in here, but this is what it looked like for him.

They say it is extremely hard to be accepted to West Point, what did your son do to get accepted?

Prayer. God's working. However, also....

He was a good student, 4.0.

He was in good physical condition.

He played sports.

He played principal trombone in an orchestra.

He had decent SAT scores.

He could write in an organized fashion.

He has no criminal record.

Good interviews with the congressman's people and then the West Point people.

I can't say that I know for sure why someone makes it.
