Attention Juniors!!!! All the academies run summer orientation programs specifically for you. Application windows are open now and will close soon. West Point, Annapolis, and Air Force run in June. Coast Guard in July. They are competitive applications. These seminars are an excellent opportunity to see what life as a cadet/midshipman is really like. Attendees stay in the dorms and attend courses in the academic facilities, all while being supervised by upper-class cadets. There are other visitation programs, but the seminars are the most in depth and are only for rising seniors.
Details on each academies’ respective websites.
