Hello, I'll be enlisting some time within the next two months, and ultimately have an ambition to attend the Air Force Academy through the LEAD Program. I have some general questions, but would also GLADLY take any advice from anyone with knowledge and experience with the program. -Air Force intramural sports: Will playing on a base's Softball (I want to play baseball, but I don't see that as one of the options) intramural team help my LEAD packet? I only played junior varsity football in high school and I think more sports experience will help, but I'd like your opinions. -Academics: I had a BAD high school GPA (2.7) and an even worse GPA in my first semester of community college (2.2). How deep of a rut am I in as far as LEAD admissions go? I'm going to work to get Distinguished Graduate in tech school, competitive SAT/ACT scores, and take college courses after I get to my first base. Would this be enough to make up somewhat for those bad GPAs? And again, just any general advice you would have would be MUCH appreciated.
