My daughter will be participating in AIM this summer, but I have a question for Objee or anyone else who might have an answer. I'm wondering... If her PFE score is below average during AIM, does it reflect negatively during the real application process? Does her AIM PFE performance get included in her application file, or is this summer experience really just for her? If she could improve her PFE score for the actual application, is it the only thing that matters? In addition, we keep reading that the AIM experience is for the kids to test out the Academy, but we've also read and heard rumors that some kids occasionally get LOA after AIM. Doesn't that mean their performance during AIM actually does have some weight on the admissions process? The reason I'm asking this is that an acquaintance who heard about my daughter attending AIM is STRONGLY against us sending her, saying that if she messes up during AIM, she's already jeopardized her chance before she even starts her application. Our daughter is working out hard and preparing diligently; she will go no matter what, but we'd simply like to know if there's any truth to that statement.
