Hello all, I just got back from the CVW (a great experience and an accurate view of the Academy during the exam period) and although I've probably asked more questions during my stay than I have in my entire life previously, I forgot to ask this specific one. I learned that one may "validate" classes and test out of them, if they have the knowledge to do so. If one wished to major in Engineering (a naturally tough degree) while also wishing to minor in Russian, then would that person be required to validate a certain number of courses in order to make room and successfully do these things? Also, are these types of major/minor matches common throughout the Naval Academy, and does the minor take up a lot of extra time? Thanks to all for future responses.
