I want to go to the Air Force Academy. I have an option for taking college-credit courses in criminal justice or sticking to the high school classes, which would be government and politic, spanish, and computers. If I take the criminal justice courses, I will learn how to use a weapon, how to do close-quarter combat, and how to think more logically. If I take the high school courses, I will be good at politics and government-type stuff (which I don't plan on having a career in; I plan on piloting). Which direction would help me have a better chance at going to the Air Force Academy? Also, does self-taught German count as knowing a language? I heard it could raise your chances if you knew a second language, and I do know how to speak German.
