I am a Falcon scholar with a HUGE dilemma! Over my past year at Marion Military Institute, I have done very well as a Falcon scholar. I made a 4.0 my first semester, being only 1 out of 7 cadets to make a 4.0 throughout the whole school. I am currently on track to make a 4.0 this semester as well. I have scored well on my CFA and made a 298 out of 300 on the Army Physical Fitness Test (that is the other PT test we take at Marion). After taking some SAT/ACT prep classes, I bumped my ACT up from a 29 to a 31. I have also done many other things within my company, and around the school. After all of this, I believe I have completed the Falcon Foundation program fairly well. BUT, my biggest dilemma is that, when I went to interview for my nominations, I did not receive one from my state at all! I am not qualified for a Presidential nom, so the only options I have are the VP nom and a possible Superintendent nom. Should I be worried? Or, does anyone think that since I was such a strong Falcon scholar, did well on all the aspects of the Falcon Foundation requirements (except the nomination part, of course) that the Falcon Foundation and USAFA will push for me to get either the VP nom or the Superintendent nom? I would HATE to not receive an appointment after doing SOOO well in my application! Please any suggestions or questions are greatly appreciated!!
