What People Say

A few words from past decathletes
on the impact USAD has made on them.

Personally, the study habits I developed during the Decathlon served me well in my subsequent studies in college and graduate school. Waiting until the last minute to cram for a test doesn't work in law school, so I was lucky that the Decathlon forced me to develop a study schedule. After working as an attorney for over 10 years, I decided to go back to school for a degree in chiropractic. The academic load in chiropractic school is incredibly rigorous, worse than law school, but it was manageable for me because of those basic Decathlon study habits. As a doctor, I always have to keep learning and teaching my patients, and thanks to my past training with the Academic Decathlon, I will be able to do that efficiently and effectively for years to come.
