I noticed that on the Academy Application, the section where you check the boxes of what you are involved in, under Boys State it only wants you to check if you were elected to one of three positions (gov, lt gov, delegate). I assumed there would be a box to check for just attending, for that is an honor of it's own. Also under the band box it says "section leader/drum major." This was very surprising to me that they include section leader and drum major in the same box. It's like they weigh both of these positions the same. At my school, Drum Major is the leader of all the section leaders and it is a very prestigious position. I know the application is based on a point system so I am surprised both section leader and drum major are not distinguished thoroughly on the application.
