    The ones not from High School are Residence Hall Council Representative and Secretary for a national leadership fraternity. The college GPA obviously wouldn't be either :)

    twist500, you must be from a very competitive district. Do not lose heart, you can reapply until you are 23. I hear the application is easier to complete the second time around, if that is what you decide to do.

    Are you in an AFROTC program at your college? That is another excellent route to becoming an AF Officer.

    From your stats, it sure looks like you have what it takes to be successful in whatever you decide to do.

    if i understand the process correctly, it's not a rejection letter. just a note saying you haven't gotten in yet. someone is bound to break a leg or something in may and free up a spot for a lucky somebody that might just be you! so dont lose all hope quite yet.

    best of luck to you if you do re-apply next year!
