  • How can one prepare physically/mentally

    So was looking for some pointers on what some of you staties would reccomend to get prepared to go through the application process.

    I have heard such examples as run lots of hills, when running, but what other bits of advice could you give to someone preparing now, for a future shot at the academy.

    examples, excercises, things to study, etc etc.

    Mentally-you need to prepare for the fact that there is a possibility of once you get to the Academy, you may not leave for the next 7 months (pretty much happened to the guy in the room next to me). Be determined to make it thru the Academy no matter what. Develop "thick skin".

    Physically-Run, work your muscles to failure, swim, box, condition your body for getting up at 4 a.m.

      any type of swim strokes specifically?

      4am, good to know, I have been getting up at 5am, thinking it was 5, will change that.


      It might have been a while ago and surely has gone through many changes, but what was a typical day like for you in the academy PA?

      Your responses, are very much appreciated.

        swim strokes--basically anything that keeps you above water

        Basically our day went like this--up at 4-start cleaning our room, 5 a.m. down for formation, 5:30 run, 6:30 shower and dress, 6:45 breakfast, 7:15 common areas or stables, into class at 8, 11:30 lunch, 12:45 back to class, 5 p.m. dinner, 6-whenever study or sometimes class at night.

        Now granted that was 10 years ago, I'm not sure if anything has changed.

          over the course of your stay, how many weekends were you allowed to leave and or have a visitor? Just out of curiosity.

            I always made the runs, passed the inspections, and didn't have problems academically, so I was able to leave the Academy every other weekend. I never had anyone visit me at the Academy, so I don't remember how that works.
