    What would be some good fallback schools to apply for if I don't get into USAFA the first time around?

    ROTC definetly. It should be a huge backup plan.

    So you're saying go to those for a year, and then try again?

    Reapplying after a year of college and ROTC would be an option. But of course, you may find that you enjoy life at a regular university and realize you are fine comissioning via the ROTC route. Keep your eyes open.

    Son has applied to AROTC and AFROTC as back up with 7 schools. (AROTC lets you choose 7). He might pair the list down after this weekend, since his file is now complete.

    That's Plan B.


    Plan C. This is the backup to ROTC, if he is injured and doesn't pass DoDMERB,2 schools that offer him full tuition with his grades and test scores. He applied in August and was accepted to both last week.

    Had I not received an appointment, I would've just gone the AFROTC route, and not reapply. I would've gone to a state U where most of my friends were attendinig. Lots of people reapply, but that just means another year at school (which has its pros and cons).
