I accepted my appointment to USNA in January and emailed USAFA that I was no longer interested in pursuing an appointment there. I had an LOA from USAFA but no nomination as it was not listed as my number one choice. The day after I emailed USAFA admissions and said that I wanted my application withdrawn my portal changed status to appointee and appointment declined. Here is where it gets interesting, the admissions team emailed me about 2 weeks after I declined and said that I had been selected for a Vice Presidential nomination and they wanted to know if I would reconsider attending USAFA. I was really surprised that they were still handing out nominations this late in the game and especially after I had expressed that I would be attending USNA. Any thoughts on how the VP nomination system works? I did apply for VP nom and put Air Force as my choice just in case that long shot worked out. To me it just shows that anyone can get a VP nom so might as well throw your hat in the ring.
