Hi all. I would appreciate insight into the expenses while at the CGA. I have seen that the uniform allotment is $9,500 which is then deducted from pay. Is that what cadets realistically need or is that a max amount. Also, athletic activity fee of $40 a month- does that cover your uniform if you are on a varsity team or will that be another expense? I have read about issues with the costs of books before, but $9500 for uniforms...wow! Does that include official coats and boots for winter? My family does not have military experience, so this is all new to me.
