    Tonight (Jan 21) the Military Channel is showing three one-hour shows about the military academies. The shows are entitled, "Surviving the First Year", "No Time for Summer (?)" and "The Making of an Officer." It looks like they will be interesting. Check your cable listings to see if your local provider is showing it.

    The mini-series is called "Inside America's Military Academies" and is one of the better documentaries available.

    So do you think they still use the red and green blocks during the admissions boards?

    Haha well I thought that part was interesting. They mentioned 2002- I think that was when it was filmed. So I would think they still use it. Do most colleges use that? It really got my attention and curiosity cause now I'm wondering what they said for me :eek:.

    haha I remember watching this. Good insight, but you really have no idea what it's like until you experience it.
