    And now for something completely different

    Thank you. DS did an LREC to Iceland last May and the glacier image looked similar to one he had shared with me.

    And now for something completely different

    This is quite the story for an airframe. I live 50 minutes from Davis Monthan, plenty of storied aircraft mothballed here.

    Benefit to Completing CFA before Congressional interview?

    Our DS was asked about his application status to his 1-? schools to include CFA and Plan B. Being able to say he had completed all applications, had a Plan B NROTC and acceptance to Plan B school felt very empowering to him. He felt that it showed his organizational skills, commitment...

    Grade inflation

    Thank you for sharing the link. The point differential is really nominal over the years and overall, multiple minorities improved. The study shows data related to ethnicities but doesn’t disseminate rural versus urban or private, public or charter. There are so many factors related to...

    Bowman Scholar

    Lucky he isn’t a lifelong Charger fan who had to watch touchdowns recalled for freaking taunting. Ugh.

    Grade inflation

    I too teach high school. Devil Doc and I share in that affliction, I mean blessing. I am also writing a letter of recommendation for a student I have known for four years, although she elected to work from home last school year (our district was the first in our state to reopen. We did so in...

    Bowman Scholar

    Thanks all. When I say “help him” I mean having the capability to listen to his vent, rant or rave somewhat intelligently. 😂

    Bowman Scholar

    My DS is hoping to early select Nuclear and is planning to apply to be a Bowman Scholar. He is working with mentors and advisors to that end. I have done my own digging and learning and was hoping some on the forum might share any knowledge or experience they have that might educate me some...

    Cadet Activities Record

    When in doubt refer to the instructions in the application. For our DS application cycle it was explicit who should complete it. It may have changed. He provided his resume to his guidance counselor and they completed it and submitted the activity record. They were able to update when new...

    Need Advice - Dropping a Class

    My 3/C has 20 credits and is in a constant state of needing a nap and not having enough minutes in the day. He said based on what upperclassmen in his major have told him that this is “normal”.

    No question my DS can be a bonehead, as well.

    Do most mids get class rings?

    I am not close to my dad. At all. But I do have fond memories of my mom and dads wedding rings. My dad was a USNA grad, he and mom met and got engaged post commissioning. They married and their rings were beautiful class rings. She was not a USNA grad. Decades later they are no longer...

    General Milley and "the book" ???

    I can’t carry a tune but that day I may have sung heartily to participate. My apologies for those of us who are tone deaf. We make up for lack of talent with love of country. Wish we could have shared a moment over a beer

    General Milley and "the book" ???

    Also, as an aside, and hopefully a positive. Being at my first Navy football game was a personal best for me. Special in ways I cannot explain as the granddaughter, niece, great niece, daughter and mother of a MIDN. The best moment (besides hugging my MiDN) was being in the stands. This is...
