    Around how many days before i-day are cadets usually in Colorado Springs? Do people arrive directly on i-day?

    If you want to, you can have a government issued plane ticket, which will be departing on June 23rd for us 2014ers.

    Or you can fly out commercial whenever you want, as long as you're at the academy between 9AM and 11AM (correct me if I'm wrong). If you wanted to show up after your HS graduation and hang out for two or three weeks then you can do that (if your wallet is thick enough that is). Personally I like that idea, but my parents aren't too hyped about it.:biggrin:
    I wouldn't recommend arriving on I-Day though. The day is going to be long enough as it is without having to get up at 3AM to catch a flight to COS, depending on where you live.

    Most appointees arrive the day before I-day.

    hehehe. at meals during basic, they'll make sure you never call yourself a cadet until you pin on your shoulder boards on A-day. :thumb:
