    I know for you kids that this is a way of bonding, BUT BEWARE. Start posting and say something stupid and you are asking for a world of pain come BCT.

    I can't find the youtube video, but @ 3 yrs ago, a FB poster felt that pain and it was posted on youtube.

    Want to join this go for it, just realize that AFA cadets endured the pain of BCT and now it is time to teach you from their own mistakes.

    The goal of BCT is to fly under the radar. You don't want to enter with a face attached to a name on day one and a picture of the 35 boasting this is your next plane.

    Read through this link http://talk.collegeconfidential.com...rado-springs/500981-2012s-facebook-group.html

    You may believe that you are anonymous, once you read that forum, you will understand that it is not true.

    In case you don't want to read through the pages here are some posts:

    I doubt Mr Hartwin realized he was already pegged.


    It goes on and on. I am not saying any of you will be as dumb as the class of 12 FB, just saying watch what you write. FB is not as private as you may believe. Just like this site.

    I completely agree. Already there are several upperclassman group members that will make our lives miserable if stuff like that goes on. So far it's been pretty neutral with congratulations and telling where we're from and such.

    Thanks for the reminders!
    So far, the group has been very respectful and no "showboating" has been posted/shown. So with that said, it would be "okay", if the site is only being used for networking right?

    Thus far the topics are about where we're from, FAQs, and videos! :biggrin:

    It is great for networking. Just becareful of what you write, i.e. showboating. Sometimes that takes on a mob mentality.

    Thanks for the advice Pima. We will all definitely watch our tongues (or fingers when we are typing I guess)
