I was accepted to the AFA Summer Seminar a couple of weeks ago, so my ALO called to congratulate me and asked to schedule a meeting so that we could discuss the Air Force Academy in general. The meeting went well, for the most part. Something about my ALO's been bothering me though. When my ALO heard that my dad is more than likely of Native American descent, he jumped on that and told me that I should claim to be Native American because the Academy isn't legally allowed to ask me to prove if that's true or not. I wasn't comfortable with the idea, so I told him no... He later sent me an email between him and another AF LT that pretty much said, "Incidentally, intelligent Asian* applicants are a dime a dozen and none of the Academies are hurting for them as a diversity category. Not so with Native American applicants. She would be MUCH more better checking both of the valid diversity blocks……" *I'm half Asian. I'm not even quite sure how to respond to this... To be honest, it's sort of put me off the AF Academy. My ALO's being kind of persistent about this whole thing, and I don't really want to deal with him anymore. Any ideas or advice, please?
