Living in a military school is tough, but in the end the effort is well worth it. Skills such as time management, discipline, and leadership are developed while attending the New Mexico Military Institute.

The network at NMMI is quite complicated. The network has a filter that disables a majority of major websites that are used commonly. Some websites are allowed but are filtered to a certain extent. Search results in search engines are also filtered and in most cases require specific terms to narrow results. The network is also a bit difficult to work with since a user log-in and password is required for most access ports. The use of the Wifi on mobile devices proves to be harder to manage than on regular desktops with the constant need to log in.

I do not take any online courses at NMMI so I am not able to give any insight on this topic.
My sincerest Apologies.
If anything, I do know that many cadets take courses over the summer and are able to receive credit without much complications or trouble.

The New Mexico Military Institute is well known school in the military. The SROTC program at NMMI is very in-depth with the training and knowledge necessary to pass LDAC (Leadership Development Assessment Course). On average, NMMI commissions close to 50 new Second Lieutenants every year. The institute is also known for it's Service Academy Self-Prep program. All five service academies send their prep students to NMMI as a stepping stone to better assess their qualification for the service academies. The prep students that are sent to NMMI are Sponsored Preps, and the cadets that are looking to join on their own are Self Preps. The program is unique because both types of preps are given the same courses for each specific service academy to better compare their results and standings in the competition for slots in the academies. The self prep program has had a 50% acceptance rate over the years and to this day is still a highly populated program.

The campus has a wide variety of resources on both an academic and professional level. The library can offer much information yet finding what you need to know specifically is rather difficult. On a professional level, the professors and cadets both have a plethora of knowledge to help in many given career fields but again, it is rather difficult to find out what you may be looking for specifically. If anything, the only way to find what you need is to ask around and possible endure being sent on a scavenger hunt. One cadet/professor may have an idea of who to go to and that individual will send you elsewhere if needed. The cycle continues until you eventually reach your mark or find an alternative but about 80% of the time you will find what you need to know.

There is free tutoring available and professors are always in during office hours to help cadets. There is a public gym by the school that provides free membership for cadets.

There is always a proper with the network once a week mainly due to the server crashing. Not to mention mostly ever website is blocked affecting research which we direly need since most of the work done for school is in the dorms.

Schedule is controlled by the school. Only thing you can control is what classes you decide to take in the beginning of the semester. Other than that forget about having a free weekend. Exact opposite of flexibility but this in turn builds character as well as discipline among the cadets.

NMMI is a military school and the instructors/admissions have high expectation for us. Therefore, some of us take up to 20-24 credits per semesters. The classes are sometimes hard, including all the extra activities that they add to our schedules such as parades, mandatory sports games that we have to go to, meetings and formations it is hard to keep up with our studies. All of these activities make it almost impossible for us to study and do our homework but i think that this will benefit me for my next college by preparing me and teaching me time management.

There are people from all over the world that come to NMMI. Theres cadets from Poland, Mexico, Ireland, Germany, Makarska, Afghanistan as well as other states of the country such as Texas, California, Colorado, Arizona, etc. There's many clubs for all kind of people for both male and female. As a cadet here at NMMI I can honestly say that I have made the best friends I could ever met or have. I live with them and gotten to know a lot of people. We are all very close, we workout together, study together, suffer together and laugh together. I will never forget my two years at NMMI.

Had to put this under student body, this is a warning.
DO NOT ATTEND. If you are wanting to go to another military school find one besides NMMI. To quote a friend who is in ROTC here and was prior enlisted. "This place combines all the corruptness and BS of the Army that only happens 3-4% of the time and is 100% of the time. The rapes, cover ups, etc are all here and they don't care." The 48% student retention is a true estimate, maybe even high. And the ones who do return absolutely hate this school. This is a 4 year high school and 2 year JC. One of my friends who is in his 5th year at NMMI said these have been the worst 5 years of his life.

There are some kids of drug lords here. The officers and NCOs from Dow Hall (ROTC building) even complain about it. The school is incredibly corrupt because they have a biased towards them because they donate a ton of money. Either you are incredibly strict and strait edge here or just don't care. They will make you march if you don't give respect towards these hypocrites that destroy everything the school is supposed to stand for.

Sometimes the school internet stops working but for the most part it is very reliable

Lots of white kids, Mexicans from Mexico, and Black football players. Three groups make up the three main groups of NMMI, but they usually leave each other alone. There are a few international students here and there but they assimilate into one of the three groups

Strong alumni network but little to no career center or job prospects, cadets often feel tossed out with no training of the real world

The academics at this school have really prepared me for the next level of learning. Here teachers are flexible, yet strict. Our duty is to strive to be the best and learn how to be the most intelligent and honorable soldiers this world will see. Curriculum here is very tough and really takes a lot of time out of your day to keep up. This helps me to manage my time.

I am currently getting my associates in science. My major will be health and exercise sciences. Classes at the Institute are very challenging. Along with the corps life academics are the most important topics here. This school teaches us how to manage our time while being successful corps leaders. The class material is intense yet very rewarding if you can stick with the amount of time needed to study each day.

Many of the instructors are passionate about there work; to teach. The instructors want to help build a base of knowledge for the student--knowledge that is oriented to the students major field of study. Again, many of the instructors are very helpful and understanding, but, what the student has to remember is that it is up to the individual to put enough effort into their studies , to earn the grade. This is where the idea, "that if this is not a military school it is nothing.." comes to mind. If the student is not obedient in their work, then their grade will reflect their effort. As long as students maintain a scenes of honor to themselves; duty to their work; there is nothing they can not achieve.

Most of the students here at the institute are hard-working individuals that are here to make the best of their education. The militaristic nature of the institute helps keep strong structure and high moral amongst the corps of cadets and it can be seen through their efforts not only in their academics but as well as their participation in sports and other student-oriented activities!

I'm a Criminal Justice major, I am able to learn a lot from the experienced teachers. Being at a military school allows me to build up the discipline I may need, as well as learning how to deal under certain stresses.

My school is uniquely diverse. There are kids from all around the country, as well as from different parts of the world. People who come to this school are able to learn about different cultures and backgrounds that they may have not had the opportunity to do at any other school. All the students at this school have a unique bond because of the pressure that gets put on each student, due to the fact that it is a military school.

There are no online courses at the school I attend. All the classes take place in a classroom setting, where students are able to interact with eachother as well as the teacher.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The education I am receiving is worth what I am paying. I did not get financial aid because I did not qualify but I was able to get a loan. It would be nice if I could have some extra help finding money to help pay for school.

If you want to be in the military it would be the school for you to go to to be ready for that career.

The athletic facilities are great places to be. The libraries hold tutors every night during study hall for every student to use at their own disgression
Sorry, there are no reviews.
