    My DS just got told by his ALO yesterday that she will be applying him for FVE. Does that mean my DS would get a chance to visit the Academy for sure? What are the chances? Does anybody know? Please advise. Many thanks,

    My ALO also "nominated" me and and was
    chosen. I was told just because you are nominated doesn't mean you will be selected. FVE was great! I was there Sept 21 and the USAFA was better than I ever imagined!

    Falcon Visitation Experience- it's like the candidate visit weekend (USNA), but it's 5 days.

    @TacticalNuke: FVE should be added to the Acronym list.

    My DS did not go to SS. This would be his very first visit if selected.

    If it makes you feel any better, I visited every single Service Academy except Air Force during my admissions process, and guess where I wound up?
