it's Hell to be at VMI, but it's a Hell of a place to be from.I look back on my time at VMI with total respect and fondness. I made a lot of friends for a lifetime, and I probably could've made more if I reached out to others a little more. Nonetheless, it sucked. No way to hide it. But you felt part of something and you have to stretch to find a reason to not be there. It prepares you for life in that you have to make your own success, but others can and will help you if you treat them with respect. The Brother Rat spirit is alive and well if you take the time to support others. What you get back is tenfold what you put in, in most cases.The education is top-of-the-line. Did I use my major in my military career? No, but it helped me to learn to bear down on my classes and learn the stuff. It taught me to persevere. This school broke me down freshmen year, and spent the last three years building me up. I am a capable, confident man today because of VMI.
