Coast Guard Academy Cadet Candidates, A good deal of this website is devoted to prospective cadets/midshipmen asking questions to current cadets/midshipmen, parents, prior service members, and alumni about what they can expect... Now I have a few questions for you; What do YOU expect out of the Academy? What do you see it giving to you? What do you hope to get out of four years at a pretty tough institution? What do you hope to do after you walk across that stage, receiving your diploma and commission? I would suspect many of those answers will change, starting with that first day your drive through those front gates to the day you leave holding a tough envelope containing your BS degree, commission as an Ensign in the USCG, and your new military ID. Let me know what you're hoping for out of the institution. Keep in mind I am not an admissions officer, I don't know anyone's name here, so I don't need to see the response to an admissions questionaire. Thanks in advance for the responses.
