I came across a post in the USNA forum that made we wonder about our own New Cadets at USMA. The academic placement tests for the NCs are/were scheduled for sometime this week. Were the NCs expected to bring a calculator for the tests? I know DS has his calculator safely piled in his A-Day equipment cache in our living room, ready for us to deliver for the start of his academic year in August, but if he needed one for the CBT placement tests, that was never communicated. Calculator was not on any lists, not the formal USMA one sent prior to CBT, not even on the various lists we saw here in the forums which included some pretty optional items. It seems unlikely that USMA has 1100 calculators to hand out for the test sessions (especially since the ones the students use these days are the $150 analytical calculators). Does anyone have any insights or thoughts? Thanks. (Made it almost a whole week before sliding into helicopter mode.... that's progress I guess).
