http://www.usafapeca.com/ I am 20 years old and currently in the process of enlisting into the Air Force. By "in the process" I mean that I'm still in talks with my recruiter, but have decided that I will join. It's just a matter of taking the ASVAB and getting through MEPS now. Anyway, it seems like time is against me considering I need to be accepted into the Academy before I turn 23. I am curious as to what I can do to really help my goal of being accepted into the AFA. I read somewhere that you are able to apply as early as BMT, but they recommended waiting until you at least reached tech school. I don't have any college credits. I did very well in school, but I regretfully never joined any sports. I can only recall in being in one club that fell apart as soon as it started and possibly a second club. I graduated in the top 11% of my class with a 4.0 GPA. I know I am academically qualified, but my sports/extracurricular activities just don't make the cut. What can I do in and outside of the service to make up for this? All help would be greatly appreciated.
