    Does USAFA check up on their candidates grades at any time? Or is there any other type of "watching" that they do?

    They can, but usually it's the ALO's that are watching...

    Grade Check Up

    Hi
    The academy will want a copy of your transcripts after your first semester of your senior year. This goes into the over all mix as I understand it. Then your final transcripts with proof of graduation from high school goes in after you graduate. The last semester of your senior year may not be as important.....BUT....I would do my best not to get any very low or failing grades as the academy can still pull back their offer. Keep yourself safe, healthy and out of trouble.
    Regards
    John

    The academy will do a grade check...especially of any "appointee" to see that they do not "quit" their final semester.

    I will tell you that appointments have been rescinded for grades the second semester. Is it a common occurrence? No, but it has happened.

    For anyone: keep up the amazing "work" you do both in and out of school...press ahead until you walk across the stage, diploma in hand...

    Then take a week or two off...recharge the batteries, and then "fire up" for the next phase!! :thumb:

    I have not received an appointment or nomination yet but I am hopeful. Do you think my semester grades will really hurt me? I'm in all AP classes but may come out with two B's ans worst case a 79 in AP physics. Other than that the rest are a's. My Afa calculated GPA is 4.0 so I don't want to look bad to the academy
