Son just got a wait list letter. Was wondering what that exactly means? He has a 4.7 GPA. Valedictorian of the Florida AirFotce Academy, Wing Commander of his group, ROTC Commnader, has done thousands of hours of public service, is on multiple sports teams and is top 3 in school on them, and gets a wait list letter and not an accepted letter. Wow, really must be a lot of smart kids out there to beat ALL that.
