In addition to those standard courses, Blackjack also offers unofficial courses that deal with the shadier side of military life. It is said the going to the Nagelring will ensure its graduates a glorious warrior's funeral, but going to Blackjack will ensure graduates a long life and the ill-gotten wealth to enjoy it. Despite this, the Commonwealth has made no move to clean up the school, for the simple reason that its graduates are excellent soldiers.
In an attempt to improve corruption within the military, Archon Katrina Steiner has written a new course in Military Ethics, which is now required reading for every cadet in all Commonwealth military academies, except of course for the Blackjack School of Conflict.
 Kommandant Dean Bristow's Blackjack training Battalion did not expect their first combat experience to be fighting Clan Jade Falcon. The outgunned and inexperienced battalion impressed the Clan warriors by fighting bravely and honorably. Despite suffering an 80% casualty rate, they mauled the Second Falcon Jaegers, and Cadet Mark Harris defeated a Clan OmniMech in an impromptu Trial of Possession for the cadet's family home.
The Jade Falcons allowed the battalion to evacuate the planet, though they took some cadets as bondsmen. Many Jade Falcon warriors considered these cadets the most honorable foes the Clans had met in the Inner Sphere, and one Star Colonel later said that the Inner Sphere cadets had passed their trial of Position. Three months after the battle at Tukayyid, Cadet Mark Harris was positively identified as a Star Commander in Gyrfalcon Galaxy.
Clan Steel Viper later occupied the planet in 3054, and their first act was to raze the Blackjack School of Conflict.
