Does anyone know when we get to know which company we are in?
My son found out on I-Day. Cheers.
You'll either receive a small packet closer to I-day or on Iday. It will give you a company letter and platoon number. It changes once the academic year roll around though. For example, During my Plebe Summer, I was assigned to Delta (D) Company, 7th Platoon. For the last four years, I've been a part of 7th Company
You'll receive it in the mail about 10-12 days before I-Day. As I recall, a lot of mids on SAF were accepting requests to look up candidates' information on MIDS, which they're probably not allowed to do.
For those who don't know, your plebe summer platoon becomes your academic year company, and the plebe summer companies disappear. (e.g. Alpha company 2nd platoon becomes 2nd company.)
I got mine about 2 weeks before I-day last year. It came as a small postcard size letter.
Just pray you do not get N-25 or G-13!
2010 - Came in a letter dated 14 June 2010.
Haha, so the Bearsharks still have that reputation? Some things never change.
Since there is a complete turnover in the student body every 4 yrs, there is really no point in comparing what company X was like a few years ago.
I agree with you...yet, there are some trends that continue, partially based off of geography.
For example, my old company, being but a stone's throw from liberty and farthest from both academic buildings (my room firstie year was, literally, the room most distant from any given classroom on the yard) and main office, did things a lot differently than companies nearer to "supervision."
The company might change, but the reputation is kept alive.
In general, all companies will vary. Some will be more lenient; some will be more strict. Some were strict first semester and suddenly lenient second semester, and some were lenient first semester and suddenly strict second semester due to a new CoC.
Even within a company, one class might do things drastically different than another class. For example, policies and procedures in my company have already started to change because '14 and '15 have begun to pick up the reins. Next year, '15 might decide to be much harder on '17 than '14 was on '16. They might decide to be nicer. Who knows.
Being a plebe sucks in general, no matter which company you're from. There's no company that will simply let plebes slack up after Plebe Summer. There's no company that absolutely murders their plebes either.
