    So awesome seeing this again, one year later. I recall monitoring our thread for 21'ers and was stoked when I added my DS's name to the list.

    Congratulations Class of 2022 and welcome to the USAFA family.

    RickD_USAF..I started on this forum a month or so before your DS received his appointment to USAFA. I was so encouraged reading your posts about the ups and downs, how ROTC/USCGA were all in the mix, then the late appointment news, then having to hustle to get everything ready to report to Colorado Springs. I was so encouraged, in fact, that I shared your journey with my whole family over dinner one evening after it happened. My DS had applied and been turned down from SS and was feeling a bit discouraged as he began the formal application process. Your DS's journey was a great encouragement/testimony to my son. I too was elated when you were able to add your DS's name to the list! As a dad, I was so happy and encouraged to see your son's aspirations to serve come to fruition in this way, even with the other great options he had. My DS has finished his applications to USAFA and USNA with his application/CFA/interviews/DoDMERB completed since October, with MOC interviews completed (still waiting on nomination status). I am thankful to have accidentally found this forum and been exposed to you and others who have gone through this process ahead of us. Through my DS, and all of you on this forum, I have learned so much about this process. Good to know there are so many fine young men and women who have a desire to serve. Through this process, I have reminded my son to take care of his part thoroughly, honestly, and to the best of his abilities, which he has done admirably, then let the pieces fall as they may. He has taken care of his other applications and scholarship apps and the like, but will continue to know that as long as you have put your best effort forward, and have not received a TWE, you are still in the game. Thank you all for your posts, keep them coming as they may encourage others you may never know.

    Sure. I have much of it in this older thread:
    https://www.serviceacademyforums.com/index.php?threads/home-schoolers-and-class-rank.57898/

    except his ACTs improved since I wrote this - he has superscores of 36 English, 34 Math, 36 Reading, 36 Science, and 12 Essay. He is also a National Merit Semi-Finalist. His CFA scores are in another thread somewhere. Also received a 4-yr AFROTC Type 1 HSSP scholarship. We are super proud of him. He's quite a guy.

    Thank you Helic, Aina Haina, Oscar Whiskey, 2021mom, 17Lives - for your congratulations! Aina Haina, our DS did not get a slot for Summer Seminar, either, which bummed us out at the time, but was probably because we had already done the campus tour two years earlier. Summer Seminar is supposed to be an outreach to those who might not otherwise consider the Academy.

    Wishing your family the best and hoping the nomination and appointment finds you. It's a long journey. Sometimes it ends the way we wish, and other times not so much. But, if you gave it your best...then that's all you can ask for. Have a solid plan B just in case. Shoot me message if he gets in. Glad we could inspire others.

    I hope I've followed the reporting process correctly. This forum has been a wealth of knowledge for a parent with no experience in the service academies. Our DS was very excited to tell us about his status being changed to appointee this morning.

    When did you complete your application just out of curiosity?

    Congratulations appointees!! Fun watching the list grow! But for those of you waiting, don't read anything into the fact that some have heard back already. Most will not hear anything until Mid-March. Here before you know it!

    Our DS finished his application early November, but received remedials for sports injury that added about three weeks to the process. His nominations for USAFA and USNA came via call, then mail around Thanksgiving. The appointment was first think in the morning Christmas Eve.
