I have a very good friend of mine who applied to the Air Force Academy this year and was deferred from early action to normal selection. He had a pretty strong application with above average SAT scores an average GPA and many leadership positions in extracurriculars activities. He also applied to Texas A&M and received an ROTC scholarship to be in the Corps of Cadets there in case he did not receive an appointment from USAFA. Just yesterday he told me that he was rejected from A&M but instead was accepted to Blinn a community college associated with Texas A&M. He can still be in the Corps but he would like to reapply to USAFA next year if he does not make it this year and is very worried about attending a community college beforehand. What kind of effect would this have on his application next year if he down not receive an appointment this year and is still in AFROTC next year? Thanks.
