I have read in several places on here that students are given tests upon entering as to whether they can get a waiver for a particular course or if they can use AP credits and I understand that they have to select a major by their sophomore year. So, are they basically assigned freshman classes their first year and then are advised on a major based on how well they do their first year? My other DS and DD went to a state university and we as parents attended new student conference with them where we met with their adviser. They had to apply for a major when applying to the university. Just a very different process with the Academy and I want to make sure we aren't missing something. As far as I can tell, they pretty much show up on June 26 and parents are out of the picture. No meeting with advisers or selecting classes, etc? That is fine and my DS will be absolutely fine. Just way different than the other two.
