I can sort of feel your pain. I say "sort of" since I'm not in the game-my DS is/was. First off, as many have said, not all appointment notifications have gone out. Technically, you can still be offered an appointment at the last minute; it ain't over until the fat lady sings, right!? I see that you want to attend the zoo (we old timers call it that). My DS was the same way.
Statistically, it's more difficult to receive a type 1 scholarship than to receive an appointment to the academy. This year, roughly 12% of the candidates received an appointment to the USAFA and approximately 3-5% of the "qualified" applicants receive a type 1 scholarship each year. I've been out of the ALO business for a while so someone correct me if I'm wrong, especially you type A+++ academy moms & dads.
It's a full ride ("almost" depending on the schools and how they cater to ROTC scholarship recipients) to any school of your choice. Worst case, you'll get to attend a great school of your choice and enroll in AFROTC, which is just one day a week of harassment.
That's what I did (AFROTC) and I would not do it any differently if I had to do it all over again, but that's just me.
My DS was in the same situation as yourself. He reeeeally wanted to attend the academy on his first go-last year. When the rejection e-mail arrived, the disappointment was pretty difficult to bare for him but life goes on and the tough get going. He received a technical AFROTC scholarship and he was pleased. He made the best of it and kept his head in the game. He kept a good attitude, enjoyed ROTC, and got good grades in college while taking tough classes (upper level calculus and science classes). Through the grace of God along with hard work, my DS received an appointment this year. I think he would have been happy with ROTC but he wanted to go to the academy baaaadly! I even played the devil's advocate but he didn't budge. That's exactly the attitude necessary to succeed in anything in life and especially at the zoo. More importantly, keep your eye on the prize, which in this case are those shiny butter bars. The real race doesn't begin until then and source of commission really doesn't play a huge role on how your career will shape out in the Air Force. In the meantime, enjoy the ride!
If there's one thing I preach to my children like a broken record player is that, "failure is not an option"; better put, "quitting is not an option". As my momma always used to say, there isn't a tree that can stand against a person with great determination and a sharp axe.
