(Long post ahead, will try to TL;DR) I've been doing alot of reading here on SAF and you all seem to be a wonderful bunch that have very helpful/applicable advice, but I've yet to see anything like case I'm about to post. I've been "in" college since 2008 and have a total of 95 completed units through SF State. College was very difficult for me since day 1 (4 hour daily commutes, first in family to go to university, difficult major, new city, limited family resources from recession, etc.) and it devastated me my first year and a half at college. I flunked almost every course that entire time; no need to tell me how BAD that is, I've heard it non-stop for years. I decided to switch my major to accounting, get an apartment nearby the university, and focus for the next year and a half and barely got myself to a 2.0 now. I was also working to put myself through school. (SFSU has a fairly rigorous and well-known Accounting program that made straight A's difficult to achieve.) On a side-note I'm rather miffed that AFROTC puts SFSU's accounting degree and any easy-A major into the same non-tech basket; bad luck on my part. I took a break for 2 years to get my act and finances together for coming back to college and realized I had always wanted to be an officer in the Air Force but never chased it because how discouraging my peers always were in college about military careers. Recently I saw that an old highschool friend was commissioned into the AF and is loving it, and she helped motivate me. I finally have resources and the right attitude to get myself back in school and attend AFROTC through cross-town. I've spoken to several captains and majors for the surrounding detachments in my area and all say I have a chance of getting selected if I can push my gpa to at LEAST 2.7 in a tech-degree by the time its taken into consideration for SFT. Some of them seemed generally enthusiastic ,but I'm left wondering if they're just telling me what I want to hear.. Right now Berkeley is looking like the most realistic Det choice but Sacramento is a close 2nd (the same distance from my house). ~The Plan: -Go for AFROTC, take classes winter summer and fall to boost that GPA in 1 year, consider going rated to up my chances. If I make it, rest would be just hard work in my tech major til commission. Declaring new tech major makes me a Sophomore again because of the pre-reqs I need to complete. -If not selected first time, possible chance for 2nd which means a whole year to increase my gpa further (risky). -If AFROTC doesn't work out, finish up degree in accounting through SFSU. Now that everything's explained, I need to ask: I have all my GE pretty much completed. So is it an option to take majority easy-A courses and a few pre-reqs for my new tech major? I've done the calculations over a hundred times (they're correct) and concluded that if I work VERY hard, I could achieve a 2.7-2.9 GPA (3.0 if I get straight A's all semesters) by next Fall/Winter. Do I have an honest shot at becoming an officer with a tech major/rated? Even with a 2.9 GPA will my convoluted "college career" negatively affect me? If I pursue AFROTC, I plan on becoming heavily involved with my detachment, extra-curricular activities, practicing for PFA, AFOQT/SAT/ACT. Would this be enough? Lastly, I want to thank anyone reading this and especially any willing to offer a word of advice. Anything is greatly appreciated. It's been a hard couple of years, and most people who have heard my story have only ever asked me why don't I just quit. One thing I know about myself (excuse the slight ego) is when I'm truly motivated about something I go 110%. I'm ready to take responsibility for how poorly I've performed in the past and kick it into overdrive.
