Does anyone have an accurate number of applications received for the 2010 AIM program?
Stopped by Admissions today. Boss is correct A staggering number when compared to past years.
Time to rev up for another nail biting admissions year ~ 2015, here they come
What did your cadets (and future cadets) do in high school? (if you didn't mind me asking)
my daughter is going to AIM. she has a 4.0-unweighted gpa-and tons of leadership. sport-XC. community service hrs are 400++. she works very hard for everything. I'm very proud of her accomplishments.
Regarding acceptance to AIM... how do you know if your son/daughter was "accepted" or a part of the "hold" lottery? Or does it matter and just be pleased he/she will be out there this summer? Thanks
I'm really not convinced that there is this "lottery thing" going on. In several posts, Luigi59 dispels that notion completely. And in the end, like you said, it really doesn't matter just very glad to be going.
It really doesn't matter.
Everyone who was accepted to AIM was qualified.
Congrats to your future Swab!
24 days until AIM-1 begins!
Thanks Luigi59--Luigi (what does that mean?).
You know, the green guy from Mario?
I wish I could attend AIM this year. I'm going to the USMA and USAFA summer programs and the West Point one was great and I'm looking forward to Air Force. AIM would have been a third week of great experiences and I wish my prior engagments hadn't have interfered.
Nope--don't know Mario. D love WP SLS one too!! Have fun and enjoy the rest of your summer.
Good luck, Just because your son/daughter got into AIM and will do well, does not mean that they will get into the class of 2015. You need to get everyone on board with this idea. Some very top student/athletes did very well at AIM and were removed early in the 2014 process. Even the ones who were selected will not make it, don't take the rejection hard move on and the child will still make it in life.
Appreciate your post. I think it is important to realize and remember that any young person who has been accepted to AIM must be a great kid. I keep telling my D that no matter how this all turns out, whether you are ultimately accepted to the CGA or not, you need to enjoy the AIM experience and take it for what it is - something most people will never have the opportunity to do in their lives. I admit, it is so easy to get caught up in what AIM means, doesn't mean...what it really means is that this young person was accepted into AIM, and that in itself is an accomplishment that should be celebrated.
My son leaves for AIM a week from today!!! He is so excited and I am too. I'm very proud of him rangermom
Our daughter just got back from week 1 yesterday. She LOVED it. Some of it was very tough but it has helped her decide CGA is where she wants to be. It really is a tremendous experience for these young people and everyone at CGA who puts it together and runs it should be commended. She says whether she gets in to CGA or not, it has changed a part of who she is. Tell your son it's gonna be incredible.
Thanks palimom!!!!! I will give my son your message He is so EXCITED about going. We finally have everything he needs ( clothes) ect..LOL
Did you go on the Friday that they let parents come? I can't wait because my husband and I will be there on our son's Friday! rangermom
We didn't...we live in the Chicago area so my husband flew out with her (I had visited the Academy with her last fall). Then she flew home by herself yesterday. If you can't make it, she said there are a lot of AIMsters without parents there. If we were more local though we would have gone.
Thanks palimom. We are flying him out. We will be there on parents day ( Friday). We live near Buffalo, NY so we are going to drive to pick him up. I will be looking forward to that long drive home to hear about his week, however!
