    My son was awarded CULP, he also has chance to go overseas to study with his school and get some core classes out of the way, which will help his GPA...... Any recommendations....CULP VS GPA increase????? Thanks

    Ps -when will cadets hear if their culp unit is still ago with budget issue????

    My DS was in the same boat. While he was thrilled about having been selected for CULP, his assignment was to Vietnam. He declined his month-long CULP placement in favor of spending 10 weeks in Amman where he will pound out a year's worth of Arabic. He weighed losing the OML points from CULP but in the end thought that it might be a wash if the summer program enhanced his GPA. He will also receive strategic language credit which should offset the loss of the CULP points. His cadre seemed to be in favor of the plan.

    I would agree with jocomom, your son will get extra points from his study abroad. Most Cadre will tell the cadets that GPA is still the largest factor to consider over summer training. Plus if the CULP missions are suspended at the last minute he would then have neither opportunity, the Study Abroad seems like a lower risk option with high reward.
