    I'm still an incoming sophomore but planning to apply for USAFA once I graduate. I scanned through the application steps but some parts are not too clear or specified. In the eligibility step, I actually don't know where I am categorized. Whether I am an international student or not, because I am a US citizen but I am currently studying in the Philippines. What does that make me?

    If you are a US Citizen you will not be an international student. International students are candidates who apply and are vetted by their own counties in conjunction with the US. Those appointed will have their own military obligations to their home countries upon return. It can vary in service and requirements. Heck I had a kid who had a 20 year requirement for attending USNA.

    Ditto Hoops.

    You would apply for your elected rep noms from your U.S. state of residence.

    Just to be clear, you will apply BEFORE you graduate high school. The process starts in your junior year. :)
