BCT was exhausting, but very rewarding. It was one of my favorite parts of the academy. You need to let it be inspirational, so don’t get bitter. When it ends in August, there is a mandatory transition week, so you can’t go home. You attend lectures and briefs and prepare for the academic year.How was Basic Cadet Training like? I know it lasts 6 weeks, but what are you allowed to do in time period between when it end in August and when the academic year starts in September? Like are you allowed to fly back home during that time if you're not participating in any sports? Thanks I want to know if incoming cadets get a summer vacation.
