First off thank you to this site and the people who have helped out so far. I finished and submitted my USAFA application in late December; however, I did not receive a congressional nomination. I understand this will not allow me to have the chance at an appointment into the Academy. I am very interested to see how competitive I am as an applicant to the USAFA Prep school. I am a 3.6 GPA student with a 29 ACT and am a recruited baseball player by the Academy. I have minimal military background but am dedicated to becoming a future cadet and serving this great nation. If someone could see how I stack up as a candidate and/or has any ideas to strengthen what I have now it would be greatly appreciated! Also, I understand the Prep is an equally selective process, but I would like to hear when I can expect an acceptance or denial answer. Thank you and God bless.
