    I think they mean the afa.mil website. Personally I don't like it at all because it takes a lot more time to find your answer than before, and it is too busy (too many graphics) which I find annoying. That being said I am a mom and not their targeted audience.

    Wow, that's new. I don't like it at all. Way too busy and hard to find information.

    I agree, it is really hard to find the information you were looking for. It looks cool but I don't think it is as helpful as it used to be

    The new site sucks. The old site was much better and it was still a lot newer than other military sites. The title even says "Airforce" and not Air Force. :confused:

    The only good thing is that there are new videos to watch.

    True, I think it looks better, but isn't any more helpful

    Really awesome site! It's real easy to navigate through it lol..

    And yes it looks like it is obviously aimed more for young adults :p

    The site took like five minutes to load, too...
    Well, that's a bit of an exaggeration, but far too slowly.
    I switched tabs, and then all of a sudden heard some strange noise. I thought my computer was going to die on me for a sec. Then I realized it was just the AF site.

    I think that it is poorly designed for newcomers. Old craniums know exactly what they are looking for and can navigate quickly, people who have never gone through the process will actually have problems finding important info. I gave up looking through the admissions part for the WCS scoring. The last site you can find it 1,2,3. You could also see what makes up the scoring. The last website you could easily find the SAT/ACT mins to be deemed competitive not necessarily true for this one. The last one it was easy to find the maxes for the CFA. I am not sure in this case because I got frustrated taking 5 mins to find the WCS scoring.

    I also don't like that when you hit the tabs for what you are looking for they leave that picture background and the tab is black background. Maybe they are trying to give the vision test without you knowing it!:shake:
