Is it worth my parents flying to the event?
we absolutely enjoyed it but we were able to drive. the robotics comp alone was worth it. plus the open question and answer session was the best we heard on multiple trips
We went and thought it was amazing. You also get to see them march which brought tears to our eyes. And yes the Q&A was great. If you can afford to go then do it.
My dad is flying up and attending. Thank you everyone for the advice and insight!
We did not attend as we live "almost" on the other coast. DS was fine with us not attending but later said that he wished we could have been there to experience it with him. That cut deep...
However, he spent that night on campus and flew out the next morning. There were at least a couple of other AIMsters who did the same. DS has continued to be friends (close friends actually) with one of those folks so it ended up being a great experience for him as he wouldn't have developed that friendship had we been there.
My husband and I did and we sure do wish that we spent a few days around town. It sure was a beautiful place and we enjoyed the graduation and luncheon. Go if you can.
My inlaw’s are from NJ. We are from Florida. DS#1 went to AIM, grandparents saw it (will be Cadre this year’s AIM) DS#2 is accepted to AIM, grandparents are just excited to attend again. Also attending NASS, SLE, Marine Leader graduation for DS#2!
