Hi Everyone, I am fairly new to the service academy forums. I just made an account today. I was recently admitted into both USMA's SLE and USNA's NASS. To my knowledge, USNA was able to host a virtual session last year, but not USMA. Is this true? For anyone who had any experience with it, how was it? How was the physical portion/CFA dealt with virtually. Are candidates sent at home workouts? How were the academic workshops? Just curious about everyone's impressions. I am very excited to participate this year!

I did the naval academy virtual program last year, it was very informative and interesting. It was basically video classes about the application process, ships, submarines, and pilot training processes. It was a week long and if memory serves correctly, it was about 4 hours a day. One day was all physical fitness on our own, each person did a certain amount of pushups, pullups, running, etc. to add up to a team goal. Some days we did team building activities, and each day had a zoom type call with other people from across the country and a midshipman. He stayed after to answer any questions we had, or to give us advice. It wasn't the best... but it was something
