I had a question for all of you wise men and women out there. I received a call saying that the academy is mailing my appointment (the big fat letter-- not the thin white one like last year) next week from the Air Force Academy . However, I also applied to the Naval Academy and my BGO told me that the admissions staff don't look at re-aplier's files until April (is that true, by the way?). I would like to keep my options open for each, but since the USNA hasn't responded yet, I am wondering what the rules are on receiving appointment packages. I have heard that the Appointment letter requests that you send in a written statement that you are committed. If I wait to see if I get a USNA appointment, will my spot be filled or will I have a chance of losing my appointment? Has anyone been in a similar situation?
