This place is a great resource for anyone interested in a service academy. I have to thank all of the wonderfully knowledgeable contributors out there- you've answered a lot of my questions before I could even ask them! A little about me- I live in Colorado Springs, and have been wanting to serve in the Air Force and be the first in my family to attend the Academy since I was little. Only after going through the whole application process and receiving my appointment did I actually find this forum. A little late, but it's still been really useful!
