    Is athletics make or break?

    I've done a little bit of athletics during my high school time (currently a rising Senior), cross country for one year and a varsity letter in raider Team for two years. However, I am far more involved in "Academic Extracurricular" like Quiz Bowl and have published papers in science journals...

    [AFROTC] Will I get an investigation for dissenrollment?

    High School Senior Courses

    I am at the point in my junior year when I need to pick my classes for next year. I understand the Academy emphasizes STEM courses. However, math is not a subject I would describe as being easy for me. I have taken all algebra courses, geometry, trigonometry, and statistics so far. I did not to...

    Life at USNA?

    I was wondering what daily life at USNA is like and how midshipmen manage their time. What is a typical daily schedule and how much homework do they usually get? How much sleep do they typically get each night and how often do they have sports practice/time to be involved in extracurricular...

    Communication with Family during Academic Year?

    This has been something I've been wondering about and I've done some research, but I was hoping you all could provide me with some more insight. I'm not worried about communicating during BCT because I know the restrictions. On the other hand, I still don't understand how the whole "cell phone"...
