    Cheaper vacation . . . Italy or Hawaii

    Been to both several times. She’s Italian heritage and never been? That’s a no-brainer. And to Sicily, if possible. You can DM me if you’d like and I can offer up my knowledge and help (I’m on West Coast, too.) But without a doubt, Italy ALL THE WAY. Her 50th is about celebrating HER. Let...

    Not sure about all minors, but I do know that if you take classes (perhaps that lead to a minor) in certain languages, it can add points.

    Waiver Request Status

    A couple years ago, my DS received the same letter in October but won a 4-year AROTC on the 2nd board. Waiver request was automatically submitted on his behalf and was granted. Don’t lose hope.

    Dickinson. Interesting about BRADSO. I’d asked him if he was going to do it, and he gave me the impression that someone in cadre or an officer mentor encouraged him not to. Not sure why. Where did your DS do PGO? Mine went to Kyrgyzstan.

    Hi there! I saw your post about your son’s background, and mine’s is very similar, only he’s currently a MSIII. Can you tell me if your son branch detailed, and if so, to which? Why or why not? Thanks!

    IB Classes

    Your school may offer your family financial help. I’d take the tests. If not for USMA, scores may be helpful for plans A, B, C.

    Best ROTC programs

    I love that the Army War College is right there (cool benefits to that) and that it’s the host school.

    Medically Disqualified ? Experiences

    Do you have X-rays and confirmation of degree(s) of scoliosis curve(s)? They are going to want doctor’s confirmation and possibly letter. (My DS has scoliosis and is AROTC 4-yr winner.)

    Medical DQ & Waiver Declined

    Apply AROTC. My DS had scoliosis surgery and USMA didn’t request waiver. He received a 4-yr on second board and waiver was approved.

    Want to fly for the Military? Consider investing in a Class 1 Flight Physical early and on your own dime.

    Really good idea. Would Class 1 also be right for Army, ie helicopter AND fixed wing?

    CLIP-B is alive and well....

    Not sure if this is still valid, but according to page 1, I’d guess so.

    Project Go

    My DS went to Kyrgyzstan last summer as a rising MSIII and 4-year winner. Another cadet who also participated from his batallion was surprised he got it since he hadn’t done the domestic program first. He had, however, been studying the language for years and had already lived abroad twice.
