Ms. Academy Q's,
I would just like to say that you have gone above and beyond all that anyone can expect from a high school student. You are one of those people that are going to make me look embarrassingly lazy and dumb in years to come, and I already have appointments to USNA and USAFA! If you just keep doing what you're doing, by next fall, the Academies will be fighting over you. I am so glad to see students pursuing this so tenaciously. I've only gotten to know a tiny bit about you from reading your posts, but those alone are enough to show that you are working harder for this than almost all of your competition. You've asked so many questions already, and I can see in your stats that you've only been on here a DAY. You will have so much knowledge about what you're getting into by the time everything comes to fruition, you will blaze into and through the Academy with flying colors. I wish I had found this resource earlier. It can be invaluable.
I wish the best of luck to you as you begin the meat of this application process. It's long, stressful, and tiring, but for someone as driven as you, you should have no worries about getting appointments wherever you want.
I'll see you on the Yard in 2010!
