Getting Ready for AIM

(Why AIM) Permanent link   All Posts
Aija Brown

As I get ready for AIM, I am both excited and nervous. I am ready to live like a cadet; however I heard from multiple people that it is a difficult week. I will be constantly put to the test. Regardless, I welcome whatever challenges await me.

I have toured and visited the campus and even shadowed a student, but still found myself wanting more. Now I finally get to immerse myself into the Coast Guard Academy without actually being a cadet. I am looking forward to overcoming the stress with the other students in the program.

I know we will be challenged all week, I just don’t know what to specifically expect, and what exactly I should prepare for. I am also fairly nervous for the fitness test. I hope to max every event, and think I will be able to on the run and pushups, but I am worried I might not be able to do 100 sit-ups in two minutes.

Regardless of the outcome, I will certainly make the most of the program and finally be able to see what life is like at the Academy.
