Maybe he just didn't want the liberal ivy/Dartmouth environment so famously epitomized by Holtsie.

It's a longish article, but there are some very interesting tidbits:

Reading that article, it's not hard to understand why he might prefer status as a paid student at USAFA, versus being on the edge financially for four years at an ivy school, among other possible motivations.

The Post also mentioned that he will be spending a year at Air Force's prep academy.

Dartmouth was his only Ivy offer. Possible (although total speculation on my part) that his grades dipped this past semester and his Dartmouth admission was in jeopardy...

In any event, best of luck to him as he serves our country.

give the kid a break, if I had an appointment to a service academy I would have taken it in a heart beat even though I am die hard progressive total Bernie Sanders supporter

Plus if he doesn't like the regimented lifestyle he can always transfer back to Dartmouth
