It's really not that bad. After having been through boot camp, it was like I was having an out of body experience during plebe summer. I could see what they were doing/trying to accomplish, and did my best to help my classmates. It helps that priors show up the day before the high school kids, so we're already moved in, clothes folded, rack made, etc... When my roommate showed up like a shit sandwich, I was calm and collected in the room, reading reef points. They try to spread us out throughout the company during plebe summer - and I think it is to be a "rock" for the HS kids that haven't got a clue yet.Haha so I can count not being the lucky one who gets to skip it, darn it. Well I guess if it's apart of the process then I'll endure it.
No. Your clock stops for all purposes while at USNA. You get the same Middie pay as everyone else, same deductions, same everything.@T33
I know I'm a bit late but, you're an E-3, so will you get E-3 pay at the academy?
I read that certain things are deducted so does that mean they'll deduct it from your base pay?
I only ask because I'm looking into the academy and wanted to weigh pros and cons.
I'm not an Academy grad, but with many years of serving with "Ring Knockers" in Squadrons and ashore... I guarantee, most are outstanding Officers (& pilots), and make great Ship/Squadronmates & life-long friends, regardless of 'your' commissioning source.There are a lot of advantages to having Canoe U on your resume. Shitty place to be, great place to be from, as the cliché goes. Again, it's a matter of whether it's worth it to you.
