Hello all! It's been a while since I've posted anything here, but I have a story that might be encouraging to someone out there. My DS wasn't a jock (he played on the tennis team just to check the box). He aced all the AP classes offered at his high school, joined CAP, and had great test scores. The pending LOA came. We thought he was set. Then a childhood history of asthma and a "failed" methacholine challenge test resulted in a rejection letter. Rejected. On to Plan B. The story he got a week later was that someone in admissions saw his application had been rejected, picked it up and walked it in hand to the powers that be and said, "We want this one." He got a call, "Please come." Four years of blood, sweat, tears, and sleep deprivation later he's getting his commission and walking across that stage. On to graduate school, then ENJJPT. Drop night was last night... The point is strive to make yourself so good that it pains them to have to turn you down. From rejected to an F-22 -- What a ride!!
