    I was wondering if anyone could help me out. I am doing a 7-15 page research report on the AFA. Can any cadet give me some information on daily life, plebe summer (Not sure what it's called at AFA, my only experience is with USMA and USNA) graduation, branch options, summer training, and life through the years. I would be exremely grateful to anyone who could.
    Thanks!

    it never ceases to amaze me that some people say they are doing a "Research" paper on a particular topic; yet they DON'T DO ANY Research. A simple google search would present plenty of sites on what basic training at the air force and other academies are like. If you want someone to just write your report, and you not actually do any "Research", just say so.

    Before you assume, know the facts. I have never cheated in a paper in my life. I have watched numerous YouTube videos and am reserving books at my local library, but the paper isn't due for two to three months. I was just trying to get a cadets opinion on life. Thanks for the attack, have a nice rest of your day.
    And I have done my two other papers on USMA and USNA. Both over ten pages long.

    Congrats. What CC is saying is that there are plenty of resources to find the information you seek. It takes a little more effort than having a poster give you all the information, but you'll have the added benefit of being able to cite a more reliable source than anonymous poster from serviceacademyforums. Since I'm kind, AcademyAdmissions.com is a good place to start. If and when you get to the point where you have a specific question or clarification based on information you have found, there are people on this site who will be willing to help.

    Thanks, I'll definitely check it out. And yeah, I get what CC was saying, I wrote that kind of hot headed. One of my biggest peeves is being called a cheater or a quitter. So CC, if you read this, I apologize.

    A little on the aggressive side for CC -- might want to throttle back a little bit :) You can PM me if you have some specific questions that an older grad could help with ('86). Agree with Buffalo that info acquired via the forum while being nice sidelights/tidbits and could help round out a paper -- probably not good for significant piece of the final product. Good luck!

    If you have any questions I would be glad to ask my son who is a C2C (Junior) at USAFA. Just PM me.

    I can answer specifics for a 2010 grad's experience.
    usafacommunity.com has blogs that might get you moving toward specifics.
