    I just got back from my official visit to the USAFA on the Diversity Visitation Program! It was GREAT!!:thumb: It was an amazing weekend at the Academy and it solidified my desire to attend the Academy. For those who do not know, I was chosen for a free visit to the Air Force Academy over the past 4 days. It was through the Diversity Program of the Admissions office. We followed a 4th class cadet around for all 4 days, attended classes, toured the campus, went to the USAFA vs. BYU game, and interacted in many other freshman and Academy activities. The Academy has SOO much to offer!! For any candidates that get chosen for this trip, please do yourself a favor and attend the visit. You will learn so much. If you have any questions about the Visitation Program, please PM me or ask on this thread.:thumb:

    I am also a Class of 2015 Candidate for the USAFA and I also attended the DVP this past weekend. Unfortunately we lost to Utah in a very close and exciting game, but I had an amazing time and learned so much. I strongly recommend this program for anyone who receives an invitation. Just a question, do you know what this means in terms of an LOA and consideration to the USAFA? Thanks.

    I have read that this 80% of DVP particpants accept their appointment to USAFA. (Does this entail that >80% of participants receive appointments? - I am not sure.) I attended DVP in early September. I have received my West Point appointment, but have not heard from USAFA.

    Do all SAs have Diversity Visitation Programs? It seems there has been much on the threads about USNA seeking diversity yet nobody has mentioned such a weekend there.?

    You'd probably get a more informed answer to this question on the USNA forum.

    Hmm, do you think middle-upper class white male is diverse enough for that? Jewish though! Too bad religion doesn’t count towards diversity :thumbdown:
