    Hi I'm just waiting for my appointment to come and i hope i'm part of that top 70% of triple q'd people who get an appointment but i read in a previous thread that a notice of a CVW weekend is a good sign that the academy wants you and thinks you're competitive. This is a good sign for me because i received one in November and one in January. The only problem is I live in San Diego, Ca and my parents aren't exactly rich and I'm enrolled in tough academic classes sooo I went to NASS and I know i want to go to the academy so I decided not to attend any of the CVW dates. My only question is does this hurt my chances by not attending? will the academy think I'm not interested since I'm not attending a CVW?

    Tell Your BGO

    The actual words used are "highly qualified" vice "competitive."
    Let your BGO know your reasoning for turning down the CVWs. You can ask your BGO to put a note in your file (it's done online) stating that you'd have liked to go but that finances stood in your way. As a BGO I'm much more comfortable with those candidates, selectees, and even those who have already accepted their offers of appoinment, when they keep in touch. More info, more better.
