We dropped my son on R-Day, and have been watching the pictures and videos that are being published daily of the New Cadets during Beast on the various Facebook and other media outlets. We were able to spot our son in a couple, to our great delight. My question is whether there is any significance to where a kid is in line when marching around campus. Does it mean anything if they are in the front, back, or middle? Also, how do they determine which Beast company a kid will be in, and they how do they make that same determination for company assignment after beast is over and they resign everyone to new companies? Are they looking for a certain mix? Is there a formula?
