"I just got turned down from the academies, so sad." Some snarky parent that doesn't belong on this forum: "oh my DS was also turned down, he fell back on USMA and was also accepted to USAFA." "Don't be discouraged! My DD, also did not get in. She reluctantly accepted USNA." If I see one more of these threads I'm deleting this app. These freaking parents think their kids are the greatest. Have some sympathy, some of us aren't valedictorians that have had everything handed to them on a plate. Parents should be barred from commenting on this forum, always finding a way to step on some kids dignity and put their stupid kid on a higher pedestal. We get it! Your kid goes to a service academy and they are smart/athletic. Get over yourselves, always living through your kids.
