    More buffoonery

    We had a 6 hour round trip 2 weekends in a row. With likely traffic jams/wrecks. Our DS insisted we be 2 hours ahead. We did recon on the buildings and parking then went to cafe for coffee and bagel, intending to change in their restroom. He asked the custom suit shop next door if he could...

    Important matters concerning the existence of Humanity - BACON

    Trying to capitalize on time with DS before he launches into the next adventure (senior in HS, I am going through kleenex already), he was wanting to make chocolate chip cookies and so we did. Is it wrong that while we were making the dough I was eyeballing the crumbled bacon I had prepped for...

    Citadel v. Norwich. Input please.

    This is good to hear. Our DS is hoping for USNA but is pleased with NROTC and the full room and board he has for Norwich. Glad to hear your son felt good things when he was there. Good luck!

    Room and Board

    Norwich covers full Room and Board. Jacksonville U in Florida has been emailing our son offering full R and B as well. There is a list somewhere on the forum, and on the NROTC website there is a table with the lists of who offers what in great detail.

    NROTC teacher refrence

    Our son's senior math teacher became his guidance counselor, so he listed her name and email for both spots. NROTC said no. Couldn't have same person twice. He worked with his NROTC regional admissions counselor to figure out how to select a teacher they would approve of for the evaluation...

    West Point Information Session- Army Navy Week

    We attended 2 in our area. DS wore a suit. It is another opportunity to learn, and to make an impression on your Regional Counselor. Our DS said it was nice to meet someone in person who he had been communicating with via email. Lots of good info, and you can review your application with...
