I have read horror stories on these forums from years past of seemingly ridiculously difficult classes/instructors. I haven't seen as many of these within recent years. What is the current climate like for academics? How is the administration right now when it comes to giving plebes/MIDN second chances? How are the actual instructors and professors in general? Are there any that we should be warned about ahead of time? Which classes are the plebe killers? Are there any tips to graduate from the most difficult service academy besides the obvious "work hard, study a lot, ask questions, seek help early and often?" What would you recommend studying RIGHT NOW in free time to ensure success at the academy? Would hate to experience getting setback or kicked out. Any help or insight is appreciated.
