Is a school in Roswell, New Mexico, that focuses on the three pillars of excellence. academics, physical fitness, and leadership. NMMI can be fun, but is a very rigerous load. Your first year you are called a RAT (recruit at training). you have hardly any privledges what so ever, but it gets better as time goes on. you gradually earn ranks, from private all the way up to lt. coronel and beyond. its a lot of work but interesting. Owen Wilson attended NMMI.
you get yelled at a lot and dropped to do push ups at new mexico military institute:
"HEY straight ahead on the RAT walk"
"lock it up CADET"
"left face, right face, abouttt face"
"just drop and start pushing, fes"
