    Ok so I was watching this usafa documentary trailer. And the girl cadet in the video says " you have to remember all the things the upperclassmen yell out when riding in the bus or there will be not a second chance"! What, do they kick you out if you don't remember anything the upperclassmen tell you during the bus like you mess up your reporting statement?

    Skip to 3:15 to hear what she says.

    There are appointees that get rattled and do not leave the bus.
    Everything serves a purpose. This is THE MILITARY you're signing up for.
    Would you want to go to battle with an officer who freezes or panics when all hell breaks loose?
    Being yelled at and taught the basic responses during the bus ride should be the least of your worries if you are seriously considering to join The Long Blue Line.

    No, they don't kick you out of any SA for "messing up," especially in the first few days. You're expected to mess up -- after all, for almost everyone, the first days of any SA are a HUGE change.

    As a general rule (and there could be some differences among SAs), you don't get "kicked out" during the summer unless you simply stop trying (as in totally give up) or commit some major offense (e.g., drugs). Probably 99% of people who leave during the summer simply quit, as in leave on their own accord.

    Getting kicked out is more common during the academic year for things such as not meeting academic or physical standards, conduct offenses, and honor offenses.

    I remember the bus haha it's hard to keep a straight face, or at least it was for me. If you freeze up then there's something seriously wrong. It only gets louder and more intense indoc from there :eek:
