Disappointing - but fully understand. I wonder how this will affect officer accessions? Your summer camp score was critical in determining which branch you requested.

They not only cancelled the leadership portion but several others including NSTP for nurses. Bad call in my opinion as we are already getting more quantity than quality in our nurses and now they are taking some of the training away to reduce their chances of getting sick. This is like taking an infantry soldier away from the range because they might get shot. There is a greater likelihood of a nurse getting sick than an infantry soldier getting shot however like the grunt, this is what we signed up for.

Sir,
So basically they are increasing the weighed amount of the PMS evaluations.

So they’ll have to rely solely on your on-campus performance? I don’t see an issue with that, but it’s different to say the least. The Army will save a ton of money not having CST.

We'll be fine I think sir. At least my class will be and the ones that just left.. It doesn't hurt us so much because we still have a year or two until BOLC
But I could see it hurting the big schools active students. 3 months of training in spring lost, no AC and getting ready to go? Yikes

Cadet 2LT (Join to see) - it sounds like you’re going to have at least a couple 96 hour FTXs to make up for the lost time. That being the case, you’ll be fine. The only issue I have is that you’re not getting the objective 3rd party (another ROTC instructor) to evaluate you at LDAC.

True sir, but many AC cadre are known to be harsh graders against ECP cadets in general. We still get our desired branches though!
