Comment: The Citadel

(See in situ)

The Citadel

I was accepted at The Citadel in 1974. Long story short: I didn't have the money. If it weren't for recommendations from my parish priest, congressman and a USMC general, my 3.45 GPA wouldn't have even gotten me accepted.

Please don't take this wrong, for I admire your accomplishment. If you're a 25 yr. old graduate of The Citadel, aren't you still in the military? I know that I would have had to accept a commission and promise 4 years of active duty service, and 2 years reserve.

Sorry that my post strayed from your topic, but you you've piqued my curiosity.
