    BCT Boot Recommendations

    I'm wearing them as we speak, super comfortable and light, however probably not the best choice for jack's valley as water probably would screw them up. I had a heavier, thicker, waterproof boot during basic and that was a good idea.

    Bible during BCT

    Someone in my basic flight brought a bible, and during a shakedown they found out she hid photos of friends, family, etc. in it, so don't do that but other than that there's no issue.

    Current doolie, ask any and all questions

    I am also a doolie and while I'm not the OP, I can tell you that most cadets do not have a prior affiliation w/ the USAF or the academy. I personally do not, and neither do most of my friends here. :)

    No Military Connections (USMA Hopeful)

    As mentioned above you'll be fine. I have a similar reason behind my desire to serve. My grandfather was liberated from a Nazi concentration camp by the United States military. He ended up living in Israel but was always grateful to the US for his liberation, serving is my way of showing...

    Covid Vaccines for cadets?

    I think it depends on your area and the criteria they have set for receiving a vaccine, I'm 17 but the job I have (delivery driver) allows me to get the vaccine in my county. Got my first dose, second one in a couple weeks :)

    Could a good ACT score make up for an average GPA?

    Definitely wouldn't hurt. Also sounds like you're doing great, keep trying to raise it obviously, but great job. But as soon as you are given contact info for your ALO, I recommend introducing yourself (maybe schedule a phone call to do so), and ask him/her your question. Personally, I think...

    Could a good ACT score make up for an average GPA?

    Thank You!!

    I joined this forum early in my junior year, with next to no knowledge regarding the academies. Over the past year and a half, the many experienced individuals on this forum have provided endless answers to endless questions. I think I speak on behalf of all of us on SAF when I say THANK YOU...
