    No Appointment or TWE....just Crickets

    Good luck to those who may be waiting still. Congrats to those who are FFS recipients. Son got nonselect letter this afternoon. For him to be in the company of such talented, driven and focused candidates was truly an honor. He feels the same way. God bless each of you in your endeavors...

    Thanks for your reply. DS got the nonselect letter this afternoon. He is pondering applying to service academies again. Best of luck to your son and the other prep cc's.

    Question for the former academy prep cc's: do you remember if the Falcon Foundation Scholarship offers came out before you got offered your prep academy spot? DS is still a candidate, but not a recipient of the Falcon Scholarship. Nobody is posting about receiving a prep school slot. Just...

    No Appointment or TWE....just Crickets

    Congrats all you FFS awardees! I see no word of any Academy Prep offers. My DS received no emails to check portal and is still in candidate status. Do the academy prep offers come out after the FFS offers? Just hoping he is in line for some good news one way or the other. Anyone know if...

    Great! Sounds promising. I will certainly do that. Think I will just sit back, armed with all this info, and see how his candidate status eventually plays out! If he gets an offer of appointment or prep school, I am on it. Thanks, all!

    USAFA Prep School gear?

    I did call the gift shop at the Visitor Center by the Academy. They didn't have anything there. The girl put me on hold to check and came back and said they didn't have any shirts or anything like that. She referred me to the PX. Is there another gift shop I could check? I looked online at...

    GPA

    Yes, it will. You will see they have a different GPA than your transcript so you will know they adjusted it, if they do make a change. My son's was adjusted upward also.

    I think he would probably feel awkward wearing a USAFA shirt considering his classmate did get an appointment to the academy and accepted. Thinking somehow that wouldn't seem right.

    USAFA Prep School gear?

    Oh, and don't think that didn't cross my mind. Isn't it a shame though that there is nothing readily available? After all, I believe a prep spot is quite an accomplishment for any candidate. Why would there not be anything available? Is it not appropriate to wear a prep school shirt? I just...

    USAFA Prep School gear?

    Excellent idea! He didn't get a prep school offer yet, but is still hanging on as a candidate! I am thinking/hoping that will come through soon. I am just getting all my ducks in a row so hopefully he will have something to wear to school to show where he will be attending in the Fall. :)...
