    Weird -- Kansas City, MO 21 DEC -- appears to be the only future date with no registration button (and of course the one my DS needs). Should I just check back on the alumni recruiting page and hope it gets updated?

    CA2midwestmom,
    I would stand by for about another two or three weeks. I know in planning events here it took us awhile to lock in location and date/time.

    ok - thanks! I will mark the date on the calendar and keep checking back. DS has already applied to VMI, but not early decision, so he doesn't know his application status yet. And a trip to VA will have to wait until spring. But a chance to talk to alumni & current cadets would be really helpful.

    So one last reminder - if you are in New England and interested in info about VMI- this event will be a good chance to meet Alums, current parents as well as a current Cadet to ask your questions. Hope to see you in Framingham (right off the Mass Pike Exit) on Friday evening.
