When you go to the CVW, you'll be there from Thursday evening until Saturday morning. On Friday, your parents, grandparent or guardian can attend a whole array of presentations. There will be a panel discussion presented by parents and current midshipmen from each year, a presentation from Admissions, tours of many of the buildings and lab facilities, and more. There will be many opportunities for those attending to ask questions of current mids, parents, and admissions reps. Even though you'll spend most of your time shadowing your plebe, you'll sit in on some of the presentations and tours, as well.Update: I'm not really leaning towards prom anymore because I feel like I won't enjoy it as much as the CVW. I already bought the dress though.
I just told my grandma about the CVW - she said I could experience it but still go into nursing after I graduate. Is there a day where parents/families can do an orientation or something? I'm currently in school and scared that later she'll give me one of those lectures and she'll get mad at me again and give me the silent treatment.
