    Hi everyone,

    I thought it might be a good idea to start a thread for the applicants to the AFA Class of 2021 in which applicants can post their statistics so they can see how they compare to other applicants. I have created the form below and if everyone could post using the same format that would be great.

    If any current cadets or parents would like to post their appointed DD/DS stats it would be appreciated and helpful.

    Here is the form: (copy and paste this)

    I really like to see young people like you show initiative and be proactive.

    But I don't see what purpose posting your respective stats serves. I know other college forums do it, but I don't see what good it accomplishes.

    The USAFA Admissions board takes different factors into consideration. We don't know what the board will favor or emphasize.

    Comparing each other just causes (1) unfounded confidence or (2) unnecessary anxiety. IMHO.

    Best wishes to you in your USAFA aspirations!
