    Has anyone already been to the USAFA Summer Seminar?
    If so, would you tell us what happened there, what you saw, and what you basically experienced?

    Yeah, I'm pretty excited for the Summer Seminar. I want to hear some testimonies since I don't really know what's going to happen there.

    I was C Session last year. Basically, I was really really pumped to go, but a little apprehensive at the same time. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I knew that I was definitely applying. I think the most valuable thing I learned there was that not everyone there was the stereotypical definition of "military", whether they were upperclassmen or rising seniors (like I was). In fact, the most hoo-rah people seemed to be some of the guys in the elements around me. Doolie-for-a-Day was awesome -- not because it was tons of fun or made me think that Basic will be tons of fun, but because it showed me that I really could get into the whole teamwork, hoo-ah hoo-ah atmosphere when I wanted and then turn it off when I was done (hopefully that stays true after this summer!) something I really worried about. Like, would I become some military "joe" (or "jane" rather) if I did attend the Academy? Now I'm pretty sure I won't...

    Soooo, it was really a great experience. I learned a bit about what the school, military, and athletic aspects will be like, and I learned (most importantly for me) that these were people I wanted to spend the next four years with, with the exception of a few, but that's every school. Have fun and good luck with applying next fall! Get your app in EARLY!
