    I am just curious and am asking this on the USAFA and USMA site alos:

    1. Did you have a preference for which academy prior to going to the summer seminars?

    2. Did attending the seminar change your mind?

    3. What do you like about the academy you prefer?

    I was all about Navy and going Marines

    2. Did attending the seminar change your mind?

    Absolutely, I never gave USMA a chance until SLS and it opened my eyes to the possibilities and opportunities available thru the Army.

    3. What do you like about the academy you prefer?

    Army - Camaraderie, team skills, challenge every day, produces leaders excellent character, beautiful campus
    Navy - Physically challenging, produces warriors, beautiful campus,

    Air Force Academy - Secluded. 7 miles to the front gate. Another 7 miles to town. Plus, in the Air Force, if you're not a pilot, you're a "second rate citizen." Oh sure, they'll deny it. But it's true. :smile:

    I wanted to go to the Air Force Academy.

    Summer Seminar changed my mind, and I had no interest in wanting to be a pilot.

    I don't regret it, but USAFA IS easier living after the first year. I would argue their first year is worse than ours but ends earlier in March... and my plebe year really sucked, but its getting easier.

    Usafa = easy living, harder academics, snowboarding!, but you have to be in the air force and be stationed crappy places.

    Usna = better food, better location minus the skiing, better bases, more commissioning options, annapolis.
    And I got the opportunity to be one of the first women on subs so I don't regret it.
