Cadet Blogs

Why Blogging is Important to Me

I have never been the type of person who volunteered to participate in writing or putting together the school paper. This will be a new experience for me. I remember when I was in high school looking at the Academy as a possible choice, I read through a lot of the cadet blogs. I thought it helped me to see the Academy from a new perspective. I had a pretty good understanding of the admissions statistics and how I would fair academically according to my high school GPA and SAT/ACT scores, but the cadet blog gave me a glimpse into how it would be on a more emotional and personal level.

I hope to have the same effect on other high school students hoping to come here. I think it is also important to have a 4/c cadet share some thoughts on the Academy because it is so different from the other classes. The Coast Guard Academy is not for everyone; and I think it is important to have as much information as possible so incoming students can make a well-thought-out decision of whether or not the Academy is a good fit for them.
