    So what all does a Candidate Visit Weekend entail? I understand that I will be a plebe's drag and that I will follow him around. ie. morning work out, classes, sports, meals. I already know about the length of CVWs are and the basic structure, I'm just looking for more specifics. Do I need to be prepared for anything very physically or academically demanding? I have heard from older USNA grads that the plebes will try to scare you so you will think twice about the Naval Academy. Is that still the case?

    I went to a CVW in late October and it wasn't really anything unexpected. The first night we did nothing, my plebe just finished his homework. The first full day was just classes until like 3 ish and then we took a tour of the STEM buildings. The next morning was Saturday Morning PT for me, we did a lot, but it wasn't anything someone of average fitness level couldn't handle. Class wise, you just sit in on the classes and the teachers just kind of ignore you... You just listen and either understand or you don't... Like I was fine in Calc I (they took a test) and Chem I (which I've already taken anyway) but my friend was stuck in Chinese III and Calc II, so he was confused... Anyway yeah, just take the weekend to really get a feel for the academy, talk to as many plebes as you can and see if the academy really is the right school for you.

    Good Luck!

    I did nothing demanding whatsoever, it was actually fairly relaxing. The classes were interesting and not too hard if you've taken AP classes because you've already seen the material.
