My son met with his ALO over lunch today. His ALO said that he couldn’t tell him for sure if he had an Appointment or not. However, he was able to show him his “score” (the rating system the USAFA apparently uses to rank its potential Appointees) and stated that it was the best of the applicants from his school. He also said that a boy who had graduated from his school last year had received an appointment with a similar score. (But… since each class is compared only to the rest of the applicants in that particular class, I don’t think we can assume it’s a definite indicator of what the Class of 2014 score requirements are.) The ALO told him that 60% of the Appointments are out – 40% to go – so to keep his chin up.
