      Flieger83 - Sorry for the confusion. The school had an enlistment ceremony in Aug. where the freshman ROTC cadets on scholarship enlisted. My understanding was that they became property of the air force for 8 years at that point. My thinking that "enlistment ceremony" meant "enlisted" has caused the confusion. Thank you for clarifying the use of the AF FM1786. Very much appreciated. Thank you for serving as an ALO.

      Good Morning flieger83, I have a question regarding my DS. DS Applied/Nominated USAFA last year, was not accepted. Enlisted AFROTC this year. Spoke with det leaders and expressed that he was a re-apply. His det Aerospace Studies had him fill out an O-076 form. We came across the AF Form 1786 and of course were wondering if DS was qualified to submit this form as well. DS is unsure to ask this question internally.

        Okay...I'm confused; you say he "enlisted AFROTC" this year. You can't be enlisted and be in AFROTC. Is he in college taking AFROTC or is he enlisted?

        If he's enlisted, then there's an entirely different process he has to go through.

        Re-reading your post, you mention the Det Aero Studies officer; that means he's in college taking AFROTC; he can't use AF FM1786; that's only for enlisted members of the service.

        Hi!

        I like your numbers; they're competitive! As for the call from the MOC's office, that sounds to me like they're going to set you up for an interview. That's a GOOD thing!!!

        Summer Seminar...it really doesn't have anything to do with your package; and admissions won't see it.

      Flieger83,

      I received word from my congressman's office and they said they really like my application and that I should be expecting an email from them soon. I forgot to mention that I attended USAFA summer seminar. Does that have any impact on my application? Thank you.

      Thank you for your feedback. My High school counselor suggested against taking the SAT because of my low PSAT scores. She has also suggested that my application is good but not extremely competitive. Is there anything I can do, besides ACT, to increase my chances of getting in? Thank you

        I think your package is competitive except for the scores. IF you can bring them up like we discussed, then I think you'd be in the hunt. Does that guarantee anything? Nope. But if you've got excellent "backup plans" then you should be doing well!

        Hi!

        I like your leadership background, teamwork, academics, etc. You only list ACT scores so I'm going to guess you haven't taken the SAT. You "might" want to try that just to see how you do; the academy will take the best of either. Your ACT of 29 is excellent!! Try to get the math above 30...if you could get the math and English above 30, that'd be great!

        My question is, my DD will apply to 3 SA as well as AFROTC , so for the recommendation letters she will ask 3 same teachers, so, this the teachers need to write a letter to EACH , SA , with the name on it, or can be 1 letter per teacher adress to WHO IT MAY CONCERN, maybe silly question, but want to be sure. Thank you.

      Hello sir,

      I am hoping to attend USMA/USAFA. I was wondering if you could provide your opinion on whether or not I should join CAP/JROTC? I am planning on doing Model UN, NHS, and Girls State in high school, as well as varsity swimming/track.
      1. flieger83
        flieger83
        CAP/JROTC are both superb programs! I have been a member of CAP for...41 years! And I teach AFJROTC. Either one will give you excellent opportunities to exercise leadership, learn leadership, and help you grow.

        BUT...only do it if you want to! Don't do it because you think it'll "look good." Because then you won't pursue it, you'll just "be there."

        Thank you for your response. I am probably going to be doing JROTC, but my only concern is that it might prevent me from taking a class, since it takes up one class period in my schedule. There's always the option of taking a 0 hour class, but that would start at 6:30 in the morning... yikes.

      Hello sir,

      I am in the process of finishing up my application to USAFA and I have hit a wall. I have some pressing questions regarding the 2030 form and I would really appreciate having an opportunity to talk with you through PM to try and answer those questions. Thank you very much sir and I hope to talk with you soon.

      She must first be confirmed in the grade of Lt Gen. Then the AF will finalize a retirement date for Lt Gen Gould...and then they will "coincide" that with a change of command. Currently a date has not been announced.

      So I got a TWE from Navy a while ago. Stinks, but It was expected, I never managed to get a nomination to there. Interesting story, if you have the time to hear it.

      Yep! That seems to be the word from USAFA right now.
