Looking on this site I always notice people asking a lot of questions about themselves, but I would like to know a little bit more about USMA (particularly the Beast portion) from the perspective of a current cadet or alumni. Here are a few questions: 1. What is one thing you wish you had more information on or had prepared for before Beast? 2. Letters are the only form of communication with the outside world during Beast, but how much time do you really have to respond to any letters you may have? 3. How crucial is it to study Bugle Notes before going to USMA? 4. Have you ever had a less than pleasant roommate? How did you deal with this? 5. Did you find it hard adjusting to the way you eat at USMA? How is the food? 6. Any words of wisdom for incoming cadets?
