I applied to USAFA this year and did not receive an appointment. Right now I am trying to decide what to do next. I have an opportunity to attend Northwestern Preparatory School, though I would be a self-prep. Or I could continue with my plan to attend a University in North Carolina and enroll in ROTC. (Not on a scholarship) I intend to apply to USAFA again this year, though I have no idea which I should do. I had weak SAT/CFA scores which I intend to improve either way. It just seems like with AFROTC if I don't get into USAFA I would still be okay. Where as if I don't get in after attending Northwestern Prep I would be out a lot of money and gotten nowhere. USAFA is the goal, I just don't know how to get there yet. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
