    While I was looking into USMA, a cadet came into school one day and spoke to my class about his experience there and how to apply. He told me that he was a part of a recruiting company (or something of the sort, I don't exactly remember) and that he earned extra leave by going and talking to schools about USMA. I would love to help others apply and wouldn't mind the extra leave. How would I go about joining this same group? Thanks in advance!

    Jspar16, I'm pretty confident that these opportunities are only available to upperclassmen, but there will be plenty of time to check with your chain of command after the academic year has started. This usually allows the cadet to extend their leave a couple of extra days to do presentations at high schools while they are still in session prior to holidays.

    Sounds like CPRC - Cadet Public Relations Council - and they do need Plebes. They host the candidates for tours. Then as upperclassman, anyone has the opportunity to sign up for the hometown visits that usually add onto Thanksgiving and Spring Break - but priority often goes to those that participated regularly in CPRC during the academic year and validated by the needs of admissions RCs.

    Additionally, if they need someone for your area they are not beyond tasking you to do it.

    Being forced to do it isn't so bad unless you're not expecting it, in which case you may end up having to leave earlier that you anticipated (which can cause difficulties scheduling things). Other than that, CPRC is a pretty good time.



    SOURCE: I was tasked to do CPRC this past Thanksgiving.
