DS is a senior this year. All he has talked about from 9th-11th grade was attending the USAFA. This summer he got accepted and attended Summer Seminar. It's all he talked about for about 3 weeks after he got home. Over the summer, he started his application online, wrote his essays, practiced for the CFA and went for his DoDMERB physicals (passed). As of today, the different online forms for his application are complete - he just needs to click the submit button on each. The issue? He now says he doesn't want to apply to the academy. Not sure what has changed, and he doesn't give a specific reason, except he says he no longer wants to apply. We told him to consider submitting everything in case he changes his mind - I told him that he can always turn down the appointment if he receives one, but if he doesn't submit his forms, he won't have that option. I know he has time to submit, but the clock is ticking on his nomination packets, which he hasn't started. Any advice? Should we keep encouraging him or just let it go?
