Academics are tough considering the military life style.

In English, there is a LOT of reading, and if you're a slow reader, or one with low comprehension, you will struggle or fail. There is so much expected of you in your military and athletic life, one cannot solely focus on academics. VMI prides itself on the "Three-Legged Stool" concept, of maintaining balance in the three areas of academics, athletics, and military. However, each of the three legs think they are the superior one, and demand more than can possibly be done by one individual at any given time. This forces one to learn prioritization, but also ensures some failure in some regard. The trick is to manage the failures to ensure success by making sure the thing that gets ignored is of little consequence.

Academics are pretty huge at VMI, but they are a state school with limited funding. If there is a grant or other monies awarded for a particular field of study, that field will have stronger programs, but by and large the limited budget limits academic supremacy.

No variety in majors, and teachers are very intelligent but cannot relay the information they know in a very understandable way.
