I'm almost 16 and entering 10th grade this year. I'm very interested in trying to apply to USAFA. I am in the process of working to be able to solo by the end of the year and have found my ALO (have not contacted yet, but currently writing an email). There is a open house thing for interested students in the end of August, is that something I should go to or should I wait for next year? What do I do next in the process to try to get in? My family doesn't know much about the military, my grandfather go accepted to West Point, but that was in the 50's. I haven't had anyone from my school go to a military academy in over a decade. I'm not really sure where I'm supposed to go from here.
