    How heavily weighted is the college transcript in the Air Force Academy Process?

    You’ll be fine. Work hard and do your best. Your ACT/SAT and HS transcripts will support your aptitude to succeed. Best of luck.

    I'm worried...

    Mike. You're just fine. Do your best and get those applications done! Do well on your CFA and SAT/ACT. 13,000 start the application, 6,000 finish the application, and only 4,000 will be fully (medically) qualified. Control what is within your control!

    USAFA Cheating Scandal

    You're right on Paco. If you read through the thread, that was my frustration with all of the "stone throwers". No one knew or even seemed to care about the facts AND most of the details that were reported were all wrong. All of the negative comments came well before the leadership was able...

    NFL Games

    I guess I am the bah humbug of the group. Given that only 1000 out of 6000 qualified applicants to USAFA actually get in and that 25% of those will wash out for academic performance, I would not be worried about going to a Broncos game before I even started my application. Your freshman year...

    C-17 Mistakenly Lands at Wrong Airport

    I can assure you that it wasn't the same crew. BTW - there were something like 18 crew on board according to the news article. Obviously, not all as part of the active crew but if you have ever flown a pilot or instructor pilot on board your aircraft as a passenger...well you can guess how...

    Aero Club vs Powered Flight

    AVT - I wouldn't get too spun up over it (pun intended). You will have many instructors say "you fly the airplane! Don't let the airplane fly you!" As long as you study your general knowledge, BoldFace and have a good attitude, that will take you far. Now if you totally hated soaring and...
