I am new to academy experience and my DD is the first in the family to apply to any service academy. I read somewhere here that the appointee could get sent home if her weight was a factor. My DD does not have weight problem. However, I am curious to know what happened if she did not "pass' swab summer (i.e. injury or unable to meet the physical demand - cant do a particular physical task). Does the academy 'kick' the appointee out? or would the candidate get all the possible chances to perform? I would hate to have "her sent packing" at end of summer without prospect of attending another university except maybe a community college and reapply to regular college the following year.
