    Hi. I have heard of the LEAD program, in which enlisted airmen can go into the USAFA. They mention on the website that they reserve slots for enlisted airmen and that they go unfilled every year. This sounds too good to be true. Is this true? I remember a recruiter who told me that actually, thousands of airmen apply and the reason they don't get in is because of not being qualified and that it is extremely difficult to go in this way into this program. I also heard that most of these unfilled slots go to athletes and people with the falcon scholarship? Most stories I hear of people getting in through this program are airmen who have been deployed oversees. I'm deciding if I should join the air national guard and soon apply to USAFA through this program. I can't really find detail on LEAD anywhere.

    I am a prior-enlisted LEAD cadet who attended the AF Prep School before going to the Academy. I'll send you a private message when I get some time.

    Do you think you'll be able to send me some info on the Lead Program as well?
