    The Superintendent has not officially provided us the Class of 2017 Precept, but we anticipate bringing in 230-235 U.S. citizens plus up to eight International Cadets.

    Don't forget about the ~45 CGAS who upon successful completion of prep are assured of appointments, which will reduce it even more.

    It's gonna take an application with outstanding academic credentials, stellar recommendations, demonstrated athletic ability/fitness, and evidence of leadership potential to stand out from the crowd.

    And belonging to a desired ethnic/racial category can't hurt either.

    57 CGAS reported in on CGAS R-Day. All 57 completed orientation. Apparently this was the first time all have done so. Remains to be seen how many successfully complete the program.

    Last I heard the final two National Security Cutters were cut from production. Did that hold-up?
