    I got a call from my parents saying they got a DVD in the mail from the academy called 'The Life of a Falcon.' I assume it's sent to all candidates, but since I'm at college and not at home to view it I was wondering if someone else did. Anyone know if this is just a new thing this year and what's on the movie?

    I just got one yesterday... It was a short ten-minute video covering just an overview of the USAFA. Nothing really new if you have been on their website. Probably just to show that they are interested in their cadets.

    you said candidates, did they send it out to all "candidates" or to those with appointments only?

    I got my DVD today, no appointment. As kirbinator, nothing really new. They have interviews from the cadets in these videos.

    is it a tease??

    Okay.. so are they telling us to hang there..??? my daughter got hers today. In the meantime got all the ROTC stuff in yesterday. What do you all think? If they were not serious would they send that out? Anyone has past experience with this?

    I'm betting they're just reminding all the candidates to hang in there. Admissions probably wants the candidates to keep their enthusiasm about the academy up while they are waiting. Prevents some candidates from giving up and deciding to go with the "other" university they applied to and already received acceptance from.

    Just a notion...

    btown... Remember that those of us with the DVD would much rather have the appointment than the DVD, so no complaining!!! :)wink::biggrin::biggrin:)

    lol Yeah, the Academy hates me! lol

    they are probably using it for Academy promotion...like how other schools send out brochures and DvDs. Not many people know about the Academy and will apply on a whim.

    haha, I think we all treasure anything from the academy
    if we weren't so obsessed, then we wouldn't be trying so hard and going on a forum to chat about it :thumb:

    I just got mine today, already watched it. It seemed dated but had good information. If anyone with an appointment wants to trade, I am sure I could work something out.........I am just saying.
