Our DS just found out this week that he received an appointment to the Academy (!!!!) and we've cancelled plans for a backpacking trip to instead visit the Academy since he's never been and we both have the open time already. He's quite certain that he wants to attend, but we'd like for him to get a sense of things before June 27 since we may well send him out then on his own. It looks like all the slots for Cadet-guided tours are booked up for next week though. I know that we can do a self-guided tour, which sounds mostly like the visitor's center, but would anyone have suggestions on how to get the best picture of the Academy beyond that? We'd probably be there on April 3rd or 4th but that's pretty flexible at this point. Thanks everyone for both your insights on this and especially for the wealth of information over the past year!!
