My DS has accepted the conditional appointment to be a CGAS. However there is something I've noticed on this forum regarding the two institutions USCGA uses for this program. There seems to be a substantial amount of comments about MMI but not many for GMC. Is one more popular than the other? If so why? Another question regards athletics. My DS is a football player and his initial thought is to hope for GMC because it has a football program. However I know this CGAS deal is all about academics. Part of me hopes he goes to MMI simply for the sake of preserving his body for four years of football at USGCA and of course having nothing else to worry about other than academics at MMI. If anyone has a DS or DD who played a sport at MMI or GMC and is now at USCGA I'd love to hear your perspective on the issue of playing the sport while at Prep school. Were there any regrets in comparison with classmates who just focused on academics? Finally, are there any lessons learned out there about the MMI or GMC experience from your DD or DS? Thanks.
