    I was there standing in for my DD who was at district track. DD is applying to the Class of 2021. Thought there would have been more in attendance.

    We were there for DD's recognition to the USAFA Class of 2020.

    I think the "low" attendance for the information session may have been due to several things: 1) new format/having it in conjunction with the appointee recognition ceremony, 2) time of year, since many high school students in the area are preparing for the end of the school year, 3) location - not the largest "city" in the area.

    I'm not sure how the information was published. We did not know there would be a service academy information session after the recognition ceremony until we were there.

    Congratulation to your DD! We just thought it was a service academy information session..had no idea it was a recognition ceremony. It was nice to hear from the appointees and their tips for the application process. Our heads are spinning!! DD goes to Summer Seminar next month...very excited for that.
    Again, a big Congrats to your daughter!! What an accomplishment!!

    Thank you. She is so excited, and the excitement keeps growing as she is in constant contact with dozens of other appointees via their Facebook pages and group chats.

    If your DD continues to pursue the academy, your head will keep spinning :eek:

    It is a lot of work and paperwork, but well worth it.

    I'm sure my DD would be glad to speak with your DD, if she wants more information from a new appointee's perspective.
    If so, let me know, and we can PM with contact information for the two of them.

    BTW...For our DD, the summer seminar made her even more determined to gain an appointment to USAFA.

    To which summer seminar is your DD going?

    We'll be headed out to the Springs on 25 June, so hopefully, your DD will be back by then so the two can chat.

    It will be tight, but maybe they can chat between camps or once we're on the road.
