    I'll be going to the Candidate Visit Weekend later this month. Any idea on what I should expect, what I should bring, and what I should do to prepare?

    Thanks!
    Joey

    There are a lot of threads -- with great info -- on this topic. You might want to start by searching under "CVW" on this forum.

    CVW is the closest thing you're gonna get to academy life, so make the most of it. Get involved in whatever goes on, whether it be company training friday morning or, if you uave the oppurtunity, classroom discussions. Your host will submit a writeup on you so be sure to ask a lot of questions. Also this will be one of the few oppurtunities to ask a current plebe about plebe life, so DEFINITELY ask lots of questions.

    And leave your attitude at home. My plebe reports that a Drag she recently hosted brought hers and it was noticed. Be humble. You'll be rooming with 2/3 plebes who have a resume better than yours - they were at least equal to you coming out of HS but they've been through Plebe Summer and are now past "100 days" (left till Herndon).
