<p>So.. what do you say, what are my chances?</p>

<p>Thanks for any comments.</p>

<p>You CAN NOT chance for the academies! It completely depends on how you rank up in the MOC's SLATE. If you're not the top of your MOC's slate, you won't get an appointment from the slate and then you would be chosen from the National Wait List. If you are the top of your MOC's slate or if you're the principal nominee, then you are guaranteed an appointment. Although you won't know if you're the top. You would know if you're the principal nominee if your MOC sends in their slate that way and tells you that you're the principal nominee.</p>

<p>Good luck, but you seem VERY qualified. If you've gotten a nom, your chances of an appointment afterwards aren't too bad. I believe there are about more than 2000 kids who are qualified, medically, physically, and academically who have recieved nominations and about 1300 will be offered appointments, of which 1100-1200 will show up.</p>

<p>Not EXACT numbers, mere approximations.</p>

<p>(Check out the "Service Academy" sub-forums)</p>

<p>You look pretty competative.</p>

<p>An update, I was not offered an appointment. I was found "Fully Qualified", but was basically put on a waiting list. </p>

<p>I am attending the University of Washington with an AFROTC Type 7 Scholarship.</p>
