    Working while in the VT Corps of Cadets?

    If you mean actual free time, like when you aren't doing Corps or ROTC things, you'll be doing schoolwork most likely or exercising on your own. If you mean what will you do for the Corps and ROTC, you'll find out in approximately 1.5 weeks. You really don't have "free time" to just do whatever...

    Working while in the VT Corps of Cadets?

    Working as a freshman in the VTCC, especially first semester is going to be near impossible, I don't know of anyone who has done it and I'm a senior. You will need to focus on academics and all other free time will be taken up by the Corps, freshman training, and ROTC.

    VTCC New Cadet Kit

    Brasso is not used to clean our brass, it will not work well. It actually works well for everything BUT brass. Look for Mother's Aluminum polish, cylindrical red and white container.

    "Flat feet"

    I may or may not be incorrect but I was told that "flat feet" was only used as a disqualifier up until the Vietnam era and that it is no longer disqualifying, but don't quote me on that.

    Asthma Questions

    Asthma Questions

    So after 1.225 months of waiting, I finally heard back from NROTC about my waiver request.

    College v. Academy

    I find colleges to be better because they offer the best of both worlds (if it has a corp of cadets such as VT or A&M)
