    Highly recommend going to this forum. The Congressional staff do an exceptional job putting it together. My DS went to his first one when in 8th grade just to see if it was for him. We went to 3 more over the years. He gained alot of great info. Current applicant.

    My son would have to leave 30 minutes early due to a high school orchestra commitment that is plays the violin in. He will be a junior this coming year, and we feel it is important for him to attend this seminar. Will it be a problem if we have to leave at 11:30?
    Thanks

    No problem. The breakout is meeting with the congressional representative as well as cadets and speakers from earlier in the day.
