    Military Boarding Schools (Female / High School)

    My advice is to make time for her. Back off with the demands and pressure and support her.

    Does the CGA issue LOA's to applicants waiting for Waivers?

    The chemistry class DS took at the local college during high school did not compare to the course he took at MMI. Lol

    Does the CGA issue LOA's to applicants waiting for Waivers?

    If this is truly their dream, if not selected the first time many reapply next year and spend a year at a local college or attend a military junior college with a SAP program. They will get that “college life” experience at a place like MMI who has an excellent record of cadets getting appointments.

    Does the CGA issue LOA's to applicants waiting for Waivers?

    DS was cleared literally a couple of days before Day One last year. This was for a muscle strain that he had suffered many months prior at MMI. The year before he went through the process with a sports hernia. Lots of fun.

    CGAS appointment

    MMI is like high school with a little military drilling sprinkled in. Tons of freeedom. They have a good faculty and many nice club activities such as diving and flight training. There’s plenty of freedom.....make sure to stay focused.

    CGAS appointment

    Many cadets at USCGA have gone through MMI. Most looking back are glad they had the “opportunity” to do so. My DS was grateful for the time spent at MMI and felt it gave him a leg up on direct appointees. He even said during swab that there was a bit of jealousy among them of those who had spent...

    Airport and travel question

    My DS likes to fly out of Providence. We live in Alaska and he’s been back and forth a number of times. He has also flown out of Newark and Hartford. Amtrak runs to Providence and will take you right to Newark airport as well.

    CGAS and sports

    There has been a trend recently of recruited athletes going to prep schools with CGAS and not participating in athletics during the prep year......for various reasons. DS was in the CGAS program last year and he knew a few cadets who were recruited athletes and not participating in team sports...

    USCGA Class of 2023 Do-It-Yourself Appointment Thread

    You’re preaching to the choir. I was happy my DS chose USCGA. Many choose a different major due to the degree of difficulty in the enegineering department.

    USCGA Class of 2023 Do-It-Yourself Appointment Thread

    A few years ago I was working on my boat in the harbor and watched the new Lt. J.G on the local cutter run it straight into the dock....she was quite shook up afterwards as well. Incompetence is not limited to the navy. Nobody was seriously hurt but that aluminum bow folded up like a pop can.
