Hello Everyone! After reading some of the threads on this website and seeing the caliber of people who apply to the USAFA, I began to wonder why? Why so many bright and talented people from across the country would want attend the USAFA? What drew you to apply to this school? For me, it was the pursuit of becoming a pilot for the Air Force. I work aircraft maintenance for the Air Force and it is a good job, but I don't see myself fixing airplanes for a living. I see myself flying airplanes. So, instead of trying to commission from enlisted to officer through OTS, I thought why not apply to the USAFA. I work pilots everyday and a significant amount of them are USAFA graduates. So I applied and I am still playing the waiting game. What is your story?
