I'm a senior in high school and currently in the process of applying to USAFA, and was wondering about the admissions situation for the prep school and falcon foundation scholarships. I know that there is no separate application and all denied applicants are considered, but what kind of profile would get invited to these programs? My GPA is not amazing, my ACT score is pretty good, and SAT is still pending, and I have a very good resume, with volunteer service, music, Civil Air Patrol Mitchell award, etc. At this point, I think that going to a prep school, the USAFA PS or another funded by the falcon foundation, would be very beneficial to me entering the academy as a 4-degree. So really, what can I expect if denied from the "normal" application in regards to prep schools, and potentially re-applying after a year at a civilian college?
