    I was invited and plan on doing it. It seems like a good opportunity to view what a normal academic day is like.

    I agree, In all honesty I'm more concerned with handling the academic load. The physical demands are a LOT easier to prepare and handle for me atleast

    I concur with everything said. You will get a feel for the campus, the academics, cadet life, etc. It's a brief snapshot but my son liked it and it convinced him that the CGA was where he wanted to go.
