    The reason you are still looking for applicants is because 98% of the students in South Carolina are not qualified academically or physically to serve in the military let alone the academies, that’s why you have the citadel. The citadel are for cadets who weren’t qualified for the navel, air force or army academies. However the army academy (west point) might accept them because their qualifications are lower.
