This is probably gonna be kind of like the "Your son goes where?" thread. Whenever I mention applying to USAFA to friends or family, their reactions are usually something like "Oh you're definitely gonna get in, you're smart and athletic and big into aviation and..." They're always really confused when I tell them that nobody can count on getting an appointment because it's so competitive, and it's more likely than not that I won't get one. Being rejected from any school with high grades and test scores must be incomprehensible to those unfamiliar with SAs, and I get a lot of comments that I'm crazy for thinking there's any way I wouldn't be accepted, or something along those lines. What's a good response to this kind of thing?
