    Work out plans

    Any of the online pull-up programs are good, as was mentioned above. Doing negatives while doing knees-to-chest is a good way to kill two birds. For running, I found it very productive to map out a 3 mile route with a number of hills and just sprint all the hills.

    AFROTC Type 7 Question

    Scholarships aren’t upgraded (or at least I’ve never heard of it), although there may be an additional allowance for the language major.

    VMI superintendent resigns after Black cadets describe relentless racism

    I don’t disagree with you, but history and people are seldom that black and white. I agree that it was time for stonewall to go actually, but you are completely straw manning the opposing argument.

    VMI superintendent resigns after Black cadets describe relentless racism

    Not sure exactly what Wishful was responding to, but with respect to the predominantly white VMI flag you’re likely referring to. That flag predates the Battle of New Market. While it was carried at that battle, it’s been with VMI since 1850, before the war and the Confederacy.

    VMI superintendent resigns after Black cadets describe relentless racism

    For whatever it’s worth, throwing my few cents in since I lived in barracks recently. The reality is, the picture being painted by the articles is not an accurate characterization of the Corps. Could Smith Hall (Supe’s office is in there) change this or that and get better results? Maybe, I...

    Washington Post Oct 17, 2020 Article on VMI - "Black Cadets still endure relentless racism"

    So that’s essentially my point, a discussion would be far more productive to applicants/parents. One of these articles on it’s own doesn’t really help anyone. If I misinterpreted your intentions however, I do apologize for that.

    Washington Post Oct 17, 2020 Article on VMI - "Black Cadets still endure relentless racism"

    Yeah, there’s plenty of discussion I’d be happy to have about problems I saw at VMI. My problem with the article is that it rightly points out some issues, unfairly points out some, and fails to point out others that should be brought discussed, but they aren’t sensational issues....More...

    Washington Post Oct 17, 2020 Article on VMI - "Black Cadets still endure relentless racism"

    Care to share what axe you have to grind with the I...you love to post articles without any dialogue, except when challenged. There’s two sides to every story. Not here claiming VMI is perfect and has no problems, but would rather you actually have a discussion.

    Lawsuit: "waterboarding, sexual harassment...." at Virginia Military Institute

    I mean of course this is all matters of law; they’re court cases. Everything else is subjective.

    Lawsuit: "waterboarding, sexual harassment...." at Virginia Military Institute

    Pretty sure what happened is those VA violations were going to be heard in federal court along with the federal accusations. Now that the federal violations are dismissed w/o prejudice, the federal court isn’t going to hear a case solely of state violations. Plaintiff can still sue the former...

    Dyke advice

    I would advise against asking someone else's dyke to adopt him or something like that. That may not go over well.

    Dyke advice

    This is useful information. While different Dykes will have different approaches, some better than others...they’ve never been Dykes after all...I do agree that it seems complete radio silence is not likely to solve anything. Even if the Rat was totally in the wrong, the Dyke should be dealing...

    Dyke advice

    I too would be happy to give advice if you have more particular info. I’ll take a shot at addressing your concern as is. Disclaimer: I am not there now, so I don’t know what limitations are in place due to COVID, but I do know Rats are still allowed in their Dykes rooms. Sometimes the...

    VMI lifestyle?

    I won’t try to compare life at VMI with life as an officer other than to say they are quite different. The same can be said for any commissioning program. It is true that the lifestyle at VMI is quite unique compared to other SMCs and certainly a normal university. There is also a distinct...

    Type 1 AFROTC Scholarship as a Sophomore

    I don’t have an official source immediately available, but I’m near certain scholarship holders do not qualify for CICS.

    Type 1 AFROTC Scholarship as a Sophomore

    For current college students, Type 1 scholarships are exclusively for recipients of the Commanders’ In College Scholarship (CICS) pursuing technical majors. The CICS allows the Det Commander to choose one tech and one non-tech cadet per year to award a scholarship completely independent of the...

    Commissioning out of VMI

    Advanced Standing is an option should you not receive a scholarship (no scholarship, but you still commission Navy). The Army and Marine Corps are options and they don’t care about major (I include in this the PLC program). Air Force also emphasizes tech majors, but there are still opportunities...
