My son is interested in the Service Academys and has applied for their Summer Programs. He has his order of preference based on what he knows about the Academys through meetings, research etc. He feels like he should attend their programs if selected to get a good feel for each academy and because our understanding is its a good first step in the admissions process. He has been selected for SLS and we are looking at the first session. If he is fortunate enough to be selected for the USNA Session, their first session runs after that one. I was looking for opinions on doing those back to back. The advantage to us is we are not located on the East Coast so he could fly to SLS, atteend, be picked up and driven to USNA Session about 5 hours away. The last day of SLS is the ceremony and the first day of USNA Session appears to be introductory so from a physical standpoint, he has somewhat of a break. Maybe not much of a mental break. Yes we'd have to take care of clothes and all. He's a competitive soccer player, would just completing club season, so he should be very fit and mostly be prepared for the physical. He'd like to see all 3 academys to help with his decision and of course its not a given he would get into his first choice or any choice for that matter. So maybe I'd like opinions in two areas 1) advantage of doing all 3 (AFA, USMA, USNA) summer sessions and doing SLS and USNA back to back. Thank you in advance for your thoughts.
