    I know this was posted on the USAFA thread but I was wondering about USMA SLS. Would it be better to wear glasses or contacts? I know there is a lot of dodgeball so glasses might not be good. How much time is there in the morning and are you wakened every day by pounding and yelling like at NASS (so I heard)?

    i did contacts, though i have vague memories of hearing that if you do the chemistry workshop you have to wear glasses for the workshop

    other than that, contacts are fine, just make sure you can put them on really quickly in the morning.

    I wore contacts throughout. You have barely any time in the morning, I was woken by yelling, but I was able to put them in perfectly fine.

    I had the same experience as AKH. I wore my contacts all week, and I never had a problem with time for putting them in. I was definitely glad to not be wearing glasses.

    True about Chemistry Workshop: contacts are not allowed on that particular class.
