    Which uniform will incoming AFROTC students wear?

    BLUF: The current plan is for y'all to get OCPs. Starting next year, AFROTC cadets going to Field Training will be in OCPs. Which means that my class (the current sophomores/AS200s) will be the last to go to FT in ABUs. We will continue to wear them until we commission, but we will have the...

    Potential Pilot Qualified (PPQ)

    For USAFA, it probably doesn't matter. They wait until the flight physical to qualify or disqualify applicants. The trick for those of us in ROTC is that Cadre have to put a rated package together for you, and they check to see if you are PPQ by looking at your latest physical (usually DoDMERB)...

    AFROTC Scholarship: Tech to Non-Tech. Has anyone done it?

    What are some examples of a compelling case? Of course I'd have to have my own argument, but are there any examples? Thanks.

    AFROTC Scholarship: Tech to Non-Tech. Has anyone done it?

    Has anyone out there in the forum ever tried to switch from tech to non-tech on an AFROTC scholarship? I'm considering asking to switch and would like to hear from some people with some first-hand experience on what I should/shouldn't do when it comes to how I present the idea to Cadre and how...

    AFROTC PDT: Ops Air Force vs. USAFA ESET

    No, I talked to cadre about my summer plans. They are well aware of them. And I'm also well aware that HQ will do whatever they want, really. Although they do let me put in my date preferences, which has to mean something. I'm just trying to decide whether I should actually try for ESET, which...

    AFROTC HSSP Chances?

    Yeah, we do both. I'm referred to as an AS100, but my rank is C/4C. Sophomores are C/3C, and then POC are whatever cadet rank they're assigned (e.g. C/Maj, C/1st Lt). We don't use C/2C or C/1C. I really only use the C/4C for signature blocks, paperwork, etc. But when referring to the class group...

    AFROTC HSSP Chances?

    Nice stats! I'm a C/4C in AFROTC and I think you're pretty solid. At this point, you've done the interview, so it's really just sit back, wait and pray for the best. Hopefully your interview went well: I think it's pretty important. You can have the best GPA or PFA ever but if they don't think...

    AFROTC PDT: Ops Air Force vs. USAFA ESET

    Hi y'all, I'm a C/4C in AFROTC, and apparently, as a contracted cadet, I have to do Ops Air Force (or some PDT) this summer. I was nominated for USAFA SOAR but didn't make the cut. Our cadre just let us know that there are openings for GMC to go to Expeditionary Survival & Evasion Training...

    CFA -> PFT (?)

    Unless they changed something since I applied in 2017, nope. The AROTC PFA is a different test (1 min push-ups, 1 min sit-ups, 1 mile run). You could ask just to double-check, though.

    Potential Switch From Tech to Non-Tech on AFROTC Scholarship

    So if I ask cadre to submit a CPAR and HQ doesn't like the proposed major, I WILL lose my scholarship? Because he made it sound like that only happens with unapproved switches. He said I could at least ask, and they might say yes or no and leave it at that. He just doesn't think it would be the...

    Potential Switch From Tech to Non-Tech on AFROTC Scholarship

    Hi Y'all, First off, sorry if this thread is kind of redundant; I know there's a lot of similar ones. I'm a second-semester Freshman in AFROTC, on scholarship, doing Computer Science (BS) as my major. Although I'm not good at math/science, I listed Comp. Sci. on my major preferences when I...

    AFROTC Flight Name

    Hi Y'all! I am an AS100, Freshman AFROTC Cadet. The Cadet Wing Staff at my detachment has given us some pretty tight guidelines for picking a name for our flights (I'm in Alpha flight): the name needs to match our flight (i.e. start with an "A") and be the name of an inactive/historic Air Force...

    USAFA Online Application

    You won't be able to update your academic info page once you submit (without calling admission and going through all that). But while you can't change the SAT scores you i initially list, if you have the college board send scores direct to USAFA, they will eventually show up on your portal (long...

    Anyone have a CFA training routine?

    Definitely do full CFA practice runthroughs regularly (once or even twice a week). Give yourself even shorter breaks than the real test, and really find where your limit is. I know for me, the mile run was absolutely brutal. I got an okay time (6:23), but felt like trash from start to finish...

    Hello from the calm before the storm

    Good to hear of more CAP cadets applying (I've been in the Cadet Program for 7 years). Have fun these next couple years!

    2018 AFROTC HSSP Statistics

    Yeah, the numbers seemed pretty high to me as well. The info is all from an official email that I got from AFROTC HQ. The completed application number is so close to the offered number that my guess is it only lists the people who pushed through and FULLY completed the app, as opposed to people...

    2018 AFROTC HSSP Statistics

    Here are some stats that AFROTC HQ released for this year's HSSP results. I looked around to see if anyone else had posted and they hadn't, so I hope I'm not duplicating here...o_O High School Scholarship Program: - 5,581 submitted applications - 2,851 eligible applicants - 2,789 interviews...

    Why is the Class of 2022 so small?

    Good reply raimius. I was confused why everyone insisted that it was not a pilot recruiting problem, since I know that WAY more people are getting pilot slots thru AFROTC, and I've heard that USAFA basically asks cadets to sign up as pilots. So your explanation that the AF is sort of going the...
