This forum is host to an incredible resource of people with experience and wisdom, so I was hoping I could ask some of you about what you think of my plan of action. I'm dead set on going into the Air Force, one way or another. I'm also dead set on going to the Air Force Academy, and if I could I would do nothing but continually apply until I get in. However, time ticks away. My plan is, spring of my Junior year and onward, apply for the both USAFA and a ROTC scholarship (preferably to Embry-Riddle's Arizona campus, but competition for ROTC scholarships there may be very stiff. If anybody has any extra info on this, I would be very grateful to hear it). If I don't get a slot in USAFA or the Prep School or a Falcon Foundation Scholarship, I hope that I will at least get a ROTC scholarship somewhere. (If I get absolutely nothing at all, I have already won scholarships to other colleges that I can use until I re-apply). If I do get the ROTC scholarship, is it possible to still continually apply to USAFA while on a ROTC scholarship? Or would my purposes be better served by going prior-enlisted and getting into USAFA through that route? (I've heard it's much less competitive). I understand you may not be able to tell me if this is a good plan or not if you have no idea if I'm even competitive for any of this, so quick overview, 4.0 unweighted GPA 30 ACT 680 Reading 600 Math SAT (taken in middle of my sophomore year), active as leader of several clubs, founding a sports club at my school, run races, student pilot and will solo soon. Absolutely any thoughts, comments or suggestions are very welcome. Thank you all so much!
