For what its worth, just back from Plebe Parent Weekend. The weekend itself was great. Plan on attending in a year. The Dean gave the briefing to the parents on Friday. He said the Corps had gone up to almost 4600 which contributed to the significant overcrowding in the barracks. With ongoing operations beginning to end and the plans to shrink the Army, they were told they would no longer be given a pass on the Corps being oversized (or words to that effect). The Corps would go back to 4400 where it was supposed to be. However, given the low attrition this year, next year would probably be smaller than normal. The Brigade Tactical Officer (BTO) said they were planning on 1150 New Cadet Candidates on R day. This was all in response to parent questions during the Q&A. Nothing in writing.
