    AFOQT Scores

    Would these be considered favorable? Pilot - 95 Navigator - 87 Academic Aptitude - 62 Verbal - 81 Quantitative - 43 I would think Quantitative may be low. Funny thing, DS is not looking to become a pilot.

    Parent weekend

    That is what we did on Wed and Thur evening. We grabbed subs from Subway and ate while sitting on the chapel steps.

    Parent weekend

    Yes, Sat/Sun probably. That is when DS stayed with us. Some do on Fri, but they need to be back for the football game early Sat morning. We didn't want to chance it so he slept at USAFA.

    June 28, 2018 In-Processing Day

    Couldn't have said that better myself. Crazy the 21 is closing in on a year already. DS was an Agressor, now with Wolfpack.

    It books fast, especially near USAFA. You can find rooms down I25 or by the airport on 24. But, anything near exit 156 sells out. I booked early too so I am right there near the gates again. I-Day we ended out by the airport, the commute got old.

    We made a dash to the wall as soon as we got through the gates when they opened. We were lucky enough to get a parking spot at Arnold Hall and still ended up in the second row. It fills up fast. No worries this year though, I can sleep in

    Get ready to spend countless hours on WebGuy when DS is in BCT. I never realized my DS had dopplegangers before until BCT. I-Day is a flash, depending on what his check-in time is. My DS was with the Aggressor Squadron, so it started around 0630 for us. We stayed on base until 1500 wandering...

    Is your DD/DS a 22'er?

    The More The Merrier?

    Having three in theory opens more opportunities. It gives you three opportunities to win a slate. If not, you'll end up on the NWL. DS had three and wasn't the primary on any, but he was offered an appointment and is a C4C now.

    USAFA Class of 2022 Appointment Thread

    It is kind of disheartening thinking about our DD/DS being so far away. But, I can assure you that our kids are at an outstanding institution. USAFA is not like sending them to U of C or CSU. The kids are in a bubble, a unique location with all of the services available to them. It is rear that...

    USAFA Class of 2022 Appointment Thread

    I do recall those days of asking DS about portal updates. Hard to believe it was a year ago already. But, as you stated, having Plan B in place is comforting. We got to the point that Plan B was now Plan A and we mentally prepared for that. Then on April 27th, things changed. The first week of...

    USAFA Class of 2022 Appointment Thread

    Oh, it did feel like forever. His Plan B was a AFROTC Type-7 Scholarship to our state's university, which he was awarded last Jan. So, we waited and waited to hear from USAFA before he accepted it. But, looking back now it was so worth it. He loves it out at the Academy and we like going out...

    USAFA Class of 2022 Appointment Thread

    It's definitely an emotional and stressful wait. Best advice is to work on plans B, C, and D in the interim. There is really nothing you can do at this point, unless your seeking waivers. Focusing on the backup plans is a great distraction. DS didn't find out last year until April 27th. Some...
