Hey, I'm a sponsored prep cadet here at Marion Military Institute. I had a few questions..
What is the cell phone policy for plebes during the school year?
What are the chances I will be placed in band company if I do not play an instrument?
I have yet to hear back from kp, but I believe they will be sending mine and 9 others appointments soon, I was wondering if you've heard any word about that?
Thank you for your help!
The chances that you're placed in band company without playing an instrument are pretty low, but it could happen since they are always short of people.
Cell phone policy next year will most likely be you won't have it for most of your first trimester, and you'll probably get it back after that. For my class, we basically didn't have it for a full year.
How do the sponsored prep kids generally do academically and regimentally?
Sponsored preps are usually not the best academically, but that isn't a hard and fast rule. I do know a couple of sponsored preps who are smart, it's just the minority. Regimentally, sponsored preps sort of have a head start on that, so the transition is a lot easier, but they hate becoming plebes again after they already went through that at NMMI or MMI. But then again, the school is changing the plebe system a lot for next year to make it less of a plebe system.
