As a female grad, I agree 100%.Irish Dancer - as a mom and the mother of a daughter headed to West Point, let me give you some advice: don't pull the "girl-card".
Also true.Don't ever say you can't do as many or run as fast as the guys because you are female. In fact, don't ever say you "can't". Trust me - you want to win the respect of the guys and you won't by offering up excuses.
Very true. And most women do their best to meet the male standards to the extent possible for that very reason. However (and I don't want to get off-topic here), holding females to the same standards in certain events would be expecting the women to be more fit and in better shape than their male counterparts. That is NOT to say that the male standards at USNA are so stringent that females can't meet them -- but it does mean the women would typically be working harder to meet those standards.Yes the standards are different - perhaps for good reason. This is however a point of contention with the males that you don't want to be addressing.
