Hello everyone, As you may or may not know, I am currently a fourth class (freshman) cadet at the CGA. When I was applying and all the way up through R-day I got a lot of good bits of advice from cadets (past and present) and I think I should continue that. So here's the deal... if you have a question about anything that a cadet's perspective might provide some insight into, ask away. Obviously my answers are technically opinions as I don't think we've been given the hour long 0700 training in Leamy on facts . Topics I can probably discuss with confidence: - My application experience (there are people on here who know WAY more about this than me, so I can only speak to what I went through) - R-day/swab summer. Things to bring that they don't list on the packing list, what to expect, pre Rday workouts that might be useful, etc. It wasn't that long ago so it's still fairly fresh in my mind. - Fourth class year. We're almost done with first semester so I can speak to what has happened thus far and to a certain extent what comes 2nd semester (4/c boards, etc). I can talk about rules/regs that 4/c specifically have to abide by and things like bracing, squaring, etc. This is about the only thing I'm "qualified" to talk about at this point . - Life at the Academy, sports/clubs offered, day to day routine of a cadet, AIM (which I did), other extracurricular activities, etc. So, like I said, my answers are strictly my opinion for legalistic reasons, but if you have any questions at all feel free to ask. If I don't know I can try and find out too. If I'm not mistaken a couple of other 4/c, at least one 3/c, and an officer that graduated fairly recently peruse around here as well so they can speak with respect to their experience as well as the parents that have been around the system for a while as well. Ready..... go.
