So last week my shirt called me into his office to talk about this, said I'd be a good candidate, talked to my commander to get his "blessing". I contacted my local ALO and talked with him for about an hour, I told him I really don't have the strongest high school grades, I had a 3.0, I took many computer science and IB classes, 3 ap classes. I haven't taken the ACT or SAT but am planning that now. I'm good at academics when I put my mind to it, but really don't have as much to show as others. I wasn't the "best" kid in high school. But after serving in the military for over a year I've really matured a lot. I'm physically fit and have done a lot of work on my base (like a lot, I'm in comm and we are seriously undermanned, and still got this base running) So getting rec letters, or showing my performance is no problem. I've done a lot of volunteering. 5- Level. It's just if I'm to do this I'd have to get out of my deployment (this January), and change a lot of my plans I had going, and I don't want to do this unless I know I have an alright chance of making this. Maybe I could get some insight from some airman who got an appointment and can give it to me straight I'd really appreciate it.
