The rules make no sense and there is a lot of things we do that hold you back from maturing as an individual and can lead to inexperienced adults. We are locked away in our own world and limited on how much we can go and experience reality. Yes we grow physically, mentally, academically, and morally but if you can't apply those things or be able to communicate in your environment what's the point. Prohibiting students or forcing requirements just makes it harder to get outside the walls and gain experiences in the real world with regular everyday people.

My school is a military school so its really hard to get accustomed to. We are not allowed to do what we want whenever we feel like it so it makes normal college life impossible.

Everyone graduates as an officer in the Army. Many people say a West Point degree is one of the best you can have, but if your job in the Army doesn't correlate with your degree then I think over the five year span in the Army most of the skills will be lost by the time a graduate re-enters the civilian world making a West Point education relatively useless.
