How long is the break from plebe summer to the academic year?
...There isn't one?
There's a lull time after plebe summer while the Brigade returns to the Yard and before classes start (known as Reform) for a week or so, but you'll be very busy with briefs/getting settled/random tasks and don't get any extra liberty.
Your break is less than the time it took you to post your question.
haha awesome! can't wait! (no sarcasm) went to summer seminar, and i am in
There is a reason why it is nicknamed "Summer Scaminar"...
In? In where?
I hope you're not assuming that your appointment is assured based on Summer Seminar attendance.
Did you enjoy summer seminar? I'm always curious to hear different student assessments of how it went.
@ nuensis-no that is not what i mean, i know my acceptance is not guaranteed just because i went
@nman sumer seminar was an amazing experience, my detailer's were great and it is the best way to see the academy
@ nuensis it looks like i never finished what i was typing, and i do not remember what i wanted to put
Our DS who is now a plebe went to the summer seminar last year and loved it. I think its a "must do" if one wants to go to a service academy though its not officially required. It's just that if you don't attend I don't see where you would get the resolve to go though the application process. He also went to the candidate visit weekend which was valuable as a confirmation of his choice. I think he would say the summer seminar was great and the candidate visit was ok.
Please keep in mind that Summer Seminar is a recruiting tool, while CVW is a chance to visit real Plebes.
Remember too that in order to experience NASS, a candidate needs to be accepted to the program. Not every kid is accepted to NASS, or can afford to go, bad timing, etc...therefore it's not a 'must do'. NASS is not required by the Academy and plenty of kids get Appointments without attending....cue the esteemed BGO's for further explanation/confirmation.
