Hi! My son just graduated BC last Friday and is now in A School at Great Lakes. He is on the path to be an ET, which thankfully was exactly what he wanted.
Anyone have any insight into what A School will be like for him? I'm wondering I should buy him a new laptop or if they will provide him one. I'm new to all of this so any info is helpful. Thanks in advance!
Hi Jules! It has been kinda quiet here, but still post your questions because many of us moms keep an eye out for them.
Our daughter is an ET and attended A school in Great Lakes. It was a lot of work and kept her busy, but she did just fine with it (in high school she got As and Bs). The Navy won't provide your son with a laptop, but he doesn't need it for school. Everything they do/study/etc. is in it's own bubble. I remember my daughter saying she studied from handwritten notes. That being said, our daughter brought her laptop from home and did use it quite a bit...but I think it was more for emailing, Netflix, etc.
Congratulations to your son! From what I understand and have seen, there are a lot of paths an ET can take.
Hello my son is an ET . A School was difficult, he did have a laptop. I don't think it was a necessary thing, and I am not sure if he used it in school. He is currently out to sea, so I can't ask him. Sorry I caqn't be more help. Congratulate your son. I think mine is going to be a lifer.
