    Official USAFA Class of 2017 Appointment thread

    Hello all, Congrats on your appointments! I still remember that feeling even though it was four long years ago. I haven't been on here in a while, but it did help me in my preparation to coming here, especially when I got to talk to a few cadets at a SAF dinner before in-processing. I've...

    Not necessarily... we are still trying to downsize and the classes over the next few years will continue to be small.

    Chances of Getting Into the Air Force Academy

    do NOT pick a service academy based on how easy it is to get in. you will be there for 4 years, a small amount of time compared to a military career. only apply so a service academy if you want to serve in that branch. if you want to be in the military i'm guessing you want to make a career...

    Chances of Getting Into the Air Force Academy

    2016 is going to be one of the most competitive classes USAFA has seen. It will be the smallest class they've had in quite some time. That being said, keep in mind the academy super scores the ACT. They take the highest score in each category and that's what counts. Go in and concentrate on...

    visit help for HS junior

    Yes, but its not going to be anything different than a regular shadowing of a cadet, nothing "special" for appointees, other than the fact that they're an appointee

    visit help for HS junior

    They canceled appointee orientation, which is what blackbird is referring too, but i agree, 2016 will be the smallest class the academy has seen in years, i would work on maxing out that resume

    They're going to cut your hair regardless, so I say no. Its fun to see that dramatic transformation when "mop top" gets a 10 second haircut

    Questions for a Freshman Cadet

    Don't be stupid and wear civies in the springs. You may not know it, but there are cadets EVERYWHERE! Someone WILL see you, and you don't want to test your odds whether or not they'll report you. I know of at least 5 cases of doolies getting busted for this. As a side note, if you DO go...
