    Hey everyone,
    My name is kyle and i recently found out that I will become an USAFA cadet candidate at the Prep School. I'm in the Air Force stationed at Hickam AFB, HI. I was shocked when I found out so I decided to do as much research as possible. Honestly, I didn't exactly expect to get accepted. Well, that's my story and i'm glad to be a part of this forum. See you on I-Day.
    -Kyle

    Thanks guys

    hey thanks guys for your comments,
    I plan on majoring in either Eco or Meteorology. Yeah Hawaii is beautiful and I'll be turning 21 pretty soon, so I'll be able to celebrate before I get to the School. I'm glad to be on this forum and I've already posted some questions, everyone's so helpful.

    A BIG congrats to you! That's great news and I love hearing that....Do you still get a promotion when you get picked up for prep school? A friend of mine (20-some yrs ago) got selected off AD and got to sew on staff, E-5 before she left for prep.
    All the best to you, good luck and congrats again!
