    Is there any time @ NASS in the evening to study for upcoming finals? Notwithstanding the exhaustion factor...

    I wouldn't count on having too much spare time at NASS. My Mid was able to spend a few minutes a day noting things in her journal, but there weren't big blocks of open time.

    We didn't really have too much time during NASS. Our nights were really taken up by squad time and we did do some "spirit missions" and also getting ready for the next day, taking showers, and I know some of us girls got together in eachothers rooms and discussed the Academy, etc. :)

    Is one NASS attendee named platoon leader of a group? Or is that a rotatable position? Also, is there a lot of military drill and obstacle courses at NASS?

    When I went last year, we rotated "squad candidate leader" each day and then when Sea Trials came our squad leader chose the "best" squad candidate leader to lead then. However during Sea Trials we basically all shared in leadership decisions, etc. But I think it's up to each squad leader and I never saw a candidate platoon leader. We did a fair amount of military drill but not in excess. And we went to the Naval Base across the river to go on their obstacle course- it was a LOT of fun! But remember drink TONS of water we had some people falling out because they were dehydrated (they also flew the black flag at least once too :)... so it was hot! I think they said the heat index registered almost 100% humidity at 107 degrees at some point :)...)
