I was nominated to USAFA by my congressman but not to USNA, my #1. My only chance now is NAPS or the superintendents/ vice presidential nomination which I know is very slim. It is unfortunate because I believe it was my SAT score that was the killing factor in my application (1130 out of 1600). I wish to be a marine corps pilot which is why I am undecided if I will take an appointment to USAFA if offered one. I’m slowly losing hope but not giving up. Is there any advice in the event that I decide not to go to USAFA, if selected, and reapply for USNA next year? I’m keeping my fingers crossed and praying for the best.
