    I don't know the percentage each semester, but there were only 8 out of 1001 graduates that made it cumulative for their 4 years at the AFA at last week's graduation.

    The "DEAN's" list is academics; the "Commandant's" list is military studies; the "Athletic's" list is obviously physical fitness and similar. The Superintendent's list is all 3. In other words, you have to be on "ALL 3" of the other lists, and then you are on the Superintendent's list. That's why it is such low numbers. Congrats on your son for making the Superintendent's list. Mike...

    To clarify, those recognized at graduation were in the top 100 in their category (ac, ath, mil). That is different than making a merit list.
