For some time, DS has expressed an interest in the Naval Academy, but now his actions are aligning better with that desire. As a current high school Junior, he does plan on applying to NASS in February. Outside of NASS, when would be a good time for the family to visit the academy to get a sense of academy life? Perhaps a different way to ask the question, when should we NOT visit? I envision that Plebe Summer, any extended leave period (e.g., Summer, Christmas, Spring), the Dark Ages, finals week, and Commissioning Week would provided a skewed (and better than none) view of academy life. Perhaps I am over thinking things – again. Thanks in advance.
