    hey,

    I have a question:
    I've heard that one can major in business @ USCGA, but that cannot be found at their website.
    Does anyone know if it is possible or not?

    I also have another, different question. It is not really important, but I was wondering if students attending USCGA learn how to use firearms.

    Thanks,
    Louis

    cadets no longer get a rifle qual, just pistol. (unless you join the rifle team)

    Well, you'd start with a Marksman ribbon for rifle and pistol. Expert is a medal.

    It is nearly impossible to double major in both Government and Management, right? But some kids have probably done it, right?

    I can't imagine being able to take the required courses for BOTH majors....some of the engineering majors have some cross over and I can think of one person who has double majored.

    Government and Management together? I would consider that nearly impossible.

    ive only seen OR/EE double majors. unless you are an absolute genius and find the classes here incredibly easy its not worth making your life miserable though.

    my firstie last semester was an OR/Gov't major, but i'm pretty sure she validated a good number of classes 4/c year in order to do so. to be blunt, double majoring sounds like a great idea until you're actually here and realize how crazy it actually it is. that's just my opinion though
