    Displaying Leadership/Initiative/Teamwork

    I will preface this by saying that I am just a candidate for the class of 2020, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I think your ideas for the clubs are pretty solid, but you need to be able to get permission at the schools. This means that you need to really sell your program to...

    Application and Sports

    I am just a candidate for the class of 2020, so I am by no means an expert. First, you can and should do what interests you. If continuing your current regime gives you more passion than continuing wrestling then do that. However know the opportunity costs involved. You will have less points for...

    AP Scores, effect of getting low scores??

    Thank you once again for these responses. Pima, I will start reading this blog and continue researching the WCS and nomination process. Christcorp, what you said is very interesting and makes a lot of sense. So basically the CFA is the primary way that the Academy evaluates a candidate's fitness...

    AP Scores, effect of getting low scores??

    Yep I know the CFA is separate. What I meant was that since sports fall under extracurriculars and if a candidate has a perceived lack of athletics, then usually admissions will look at the candidate's CFA scores to determine if he/she is physically ready. This is what I got from my conversation...

    AP Scores, effect of getting low scores??

    Thank you for your response, Pima! I will start looking at the nomination forum to get a better idea. I am going to start filling out paperwork for nominations as soon as I get my SAT scores. In terms of other ECs I have a lot of leadership, but a weaker athletic package. I have high officer...

    AP Scores, effect of getting low scores??

    Thank you for the fast responses! In terms of class rank I am in the top 3% out of over 700. I do not know exactly how many AP classes my school offers but by graduation next year I will have taken 13 AP classes. I took the SAT in April and am getting the score report next week. I felt very...

    AP Scores, effect of getting low scores??

    With AP exams this week, I am becoming incredibly nervous. In the last two years, I have scored three 5's and one 4 on the exams. This year, I am really struggling though. I am taking AP Calculus AB, AP Physics 1, AP US History, and AP English Language. Based on practice tests I am in the 5...

    Sending SAT scores

    Thank you both for your comments. So @Va19, are you saying that you didn't have to send an SAT score report? They just looked at the official transcripts provided by the school?

    Sending SAT scores

    I am a junior taking the SAT this April for the first time. Should I write the USAFA test code on my exam? Or should I wait until I receive my scores. I have heard people say that if you wait too long to send scores then you have to pay for them. Is this true? Is it too early to send scores?

    class of 2020 applications

    When contacting our ALO for the first time, is a simple greeting and introduction enough? Or should we only contact he or she when we have a legitimate question? I don't want to start the process on the wrong foot..

    Am I competitive at all? c/o 2020

    So after a lot of thinking about my future over the past school year, I have decided that I want to be an officer in the Air Force. I want to have a meaningful impact on society and help protect the nation in any way I can. And the more research I do and the more cadets I talk to, the more I...
