Laura was in the military; the manga implies that Rin was as well before she transferred. Cecila we don't know; Char was sent by Dunoa (Dunois, as I understand). Though since Rin only returned to China a year ago, she probably only got the basics. Laura, however, would be quite useful...

Major edit:
The Gospel battle was decently carried out by the girls, I agree. My theory on 'girls v Gospel' was that the other machines were firing on long-range on the Gospel, from all sides, to limit its range of movement so that Houki, the one with the nessasary speed, could move in and finish it off. But then second shift came and that plan went out the window. It was decent, but it was still a small-scale IS to IS battle, there's lots more for the 1st years to learn before entering a military operation against multiple foes and friendies of different types, which would take a lot more coordiantion and tactical planning. Like kuroishinigami argues, it'd be a pretty desperate situation before you'd send the first year trainees into battle.

I heard that Ran is going to attend IS academy on volume 7. She could easily be the best in her year since she got A for her IS entrance test. Cecila got A, Ichika B, and houki got C i think stated in volume 2.

Okay, done reading up to chapter 3. I'm amazed with my reading speed myself =.=". Since it's late, I will write the summary tomorrow. But first thing first, a little something that caught my attention

Spoiler for vol 7:


Somehow, it make me lose my interest in this series quite a bit. Hopefully the author can give plausible explanation by next volume why this happened and what the impact of this ....."event" to the overall story.

Spoiler for Next volume: To the IS Underground Section...:


Although it was a humdrum volume 7 (and a repetitive pattern), this book managed to keep my interest in IS. Here hoping next volume will cover what happened between Tabane and Houki, and also Tabane and Chifuyu :P

Also, Yumizuru should take Ichika and his harem to visit his girls' countries, one per volume. It may be not a breath of fresh air, but at least it is not in the Academy compound.

My impression of the LN has just hit a new low after reading the latest spoilers by Kuro.

Now, Houki is practically a canon sue, the "best" suit as one of the "best" pilots, (sighs)....

The LN should be more like how one can surpass the limits of genetic selection and such.

Well, for now, we don't know what this IS aptitude's connection to piloting skill. But I agree, the author show too many favoritism toward Houki, as a pilot and as Ichika's love interest.

Anyway, the promised summary

Spoiler for vol 7 chapter 1 summary:



That was longer than expected O_O. It seems I'm really not good at making short summary XD. Part 1 of chapter 1 for now. Might finish chapter 1 summary by today.
