DD got accepted to SLS and AIM. She prefers coast guard with USNA as second. Since SLS is the week before finals, she would prefer to not miss school. Even if she has ruled out USMA, I think it would be a great experience. Although she is stressing about her grades, I think she can manage it if she wants. If nothing else, it will give her confidence going into AIM and a point of comparison. Does anyone have an opinion? Is it worth risking a lower grade on a final exam? Obviously she doesn't have her heart set on USMA but she also has never visited, so it may be short-sighted. I know how coveted these spots are and I see it as a wasted opportunity but maybe I should back-off and accept her choice.
