    Woke up to it at 6:30 this morning. Very excited and blessed for the opportunity. I thought it would be worth posting due to the weird time of the prep school offer. Anyhow, I am definitely happy the wait is over although the journey has just begun!

    Any other 2018 USAFA Preppies feel free to PM!

    I'm hoping to join the entering class of 2017 or 2018. What were your stats and why do you think you got prep and not direct entry? Thanks.

    Thanks! So I'm from Florida which is a highly competitive state.

    My stats:
    3.96 GPA (Weighted/Reconfigured by USAFA)
    ACT) English - 31, Math - 26, Reading - 28, Science - 28
    New SAT) English - 690,Math - 590
    I am from a small school so I am involved in almost everything:
    Graduating with 24 College credits
    Varsity Captain - baseball and basketball
    Student Government Officer
    Beta and NHS
    and trumpet section leader :)

    Finished app in late October.
    Nominations: Congressman and Presidental

    I think one of my downfalls was a slightly below average CFA. Although I passed my first try, it was nothing to brag about.

    Congrats! Great opportunity. If I had to guess your math test scores are probably what got you to prep. I have zero proof of that (and honestly it doesn't matter). Golden ticket is in hand is the most important part!
