    CFA video rejected

    My DD had hers rejected several times, the pullups. We ended up putting her on a pull up bar in the garage with nothing around her where a clear video could be seen. It can be a difficult angle to get.

    My DD was had a similar thing happen, but in reverse. She received her offer to USNA first but her dream was USMA. She found it was her fit after much research and several visits to each academy. She also received an AROTC scholarship to Vanderbilt. We discussed it a great deal (too much...

    Perpetual Torment

    Last year, my DD didn't show up in informed delivery either! Please keep in mind that informed delivery can also be a blessing and a curse.

    Fingerprints and Eqip

    My DD went to the recruiter's office after being directed to complete finger printing in the portal. Make sure you take your letter stating you need the prints for West Point, just in case. Our local office required it, since a code they needed was on it.

    I concur with all the others above. My DD kept hers until closer to R day as well. What if you get hurt or change your mind about the academy. It is always better to keep all your options open.
