    When to schedule CFA

    Hello! I'm applying for the class of 2025. My due date for my application is due November 1st, so just under 2 months out. I am extremely competitive academically, but the rest of my application is lacking somewhat. I am training religiously for the CFA, but my scores are not what I would like...

    AF reserves before AF OTS?

    Hello, I have 2 years left of college and was wanting to join the Air Force. ROTC wouldn’t be an option for me since I was not wanting to do an extra year because i’m already going to be a 5th year. After I graduate I was thinking of joining AF OTS. Should I join the reserves before hand? If I...

    Military astronauts that aren't pilots?

    I know that many of the astronauts that come from the military are pilots, but I wondered if any were more engineering oriented. I know that I would like to join the military and a major goal of mine would be to become an astronaut (highly unlikely, I know). I also know that engineering roles...

    What is an average Air Force ROTC fitness score?

    Hey Everyone, I am a decently fit guy and I have trained a bit over the last few months (nothing crazy, but a few sets of push-ups and sit-ups each day and runs periodically). I have been working specifically to improve on the Air Force ROTC Physical Fitness Assessment. What is a standard or...

    Bio major relevance to pilot

    Howdy y’all, I am set on majoring in a biology branch no matter what route I take in the military. do any of you know how this will serve as beneficial to me in aviation?

    Does the Air Force have robotics engineers?

    I'm very interested in doing ROTC in college and wanted to know the types fo jobs available afterward. I plan on pursuing electrical engineering as a major and wanted to know if I'd be able to do actual engineering things or if it would just be project management. Specifically, does the air...

    Will AFROTC allow me to double-major in one etechnical and one non-techincal major?

    Hey Everyone, I want to study economics (a non-technical major); however, I have been informed at only about 10% of scholarship students are allowed to study non-technical non-foreign language majors. One suggestion I received was to study Applied Math instead of Economics because they are very...

    Will Air Force ROTC let me major in economics?

    Hey Everyone, I am a rising senior, and I plan to apply for an AFROTC scholarship this fall. I want to study economics, but the Air Force does not recognize it as a technical major. Economics is still very heavy in math, especially calculus, so it feels technical-adjacent to me, where it isn't...

    Air Force ROTC: What Does it Take?

    I will be doing AFROTC once I begin college and I am wondering- what does it take? I know enough about the physical, academic, and integrity requirements, but I am talking about things other than that, such as time management, etc. If anyone has experience about AFROTC that they'd like to share...

    Squadron Life After Grad for Pilots

    Howdy, I am planning on applying to USAFA/USNA/NROTC. I looked up a lot of info on career after grad, but couldn’t find a lot on the relationships between officers and enlisted personnel and between squadrons in general. How is leadership relevant/used when a pilot? On a daily basis? During...

    How is/are the culture/people in the Army?

    I am interested in doing Army ROTC (In part because my partial color blindness narrows my options), but I have heard some very negative things about the Army and the people in it. I have heard that they tend to be not only less intelligent but also are worse people that one wouldn't want to...

    I have "mild" red/green color blindness; How does this limit my options for ROTC?

    I am interested in doing ROTC, but I am concerned about my "mild" red-green color blindness. My diagnosis of "mild" red-green color blindess came from an online test, not an official examination. My first choice would be Navy, but I am willing to do ROTC for any branch of the military. I have...

    Hi everyone! I have applied for the class of '25 for both USNA and USAFA in hopes of getting into either one in order to pursue a military career. I've taken quarantine to really look into all the career opportunities available to me after the academy in both branches. I think both academies...

    AFROTC & International Question

    Hi all, I'm a junior in high school, prepping to apply for an AFROTC scholarship (opens in June). But I will be living in Mexico by then (long story short: U.S. State Dept. reasons, and yes, it will happen). Anyone know how that changes things at all? As in, for the interview, or application...

    Should I go Navy or Air Force?

    I have been lucky to receive a direct appointment to USAFA for the class of 2024 and an offer to the Naval Academy Prep School. The extra year at NAPS is not a factor in my decision. I would love to go to either academy, so I am basing my decision on what I will do in the Navy or Air Force after...

    Hello everyone, I’m extremely considering the Air Force ROTC program and I’m wondering if any of you could give me a little insight to see if I’m even worth considering for a Air Force ROTC scholarship. Below I’ve listed my achievements and anything I deemed fitting to list: ECs: 4.26 GPA...

    PLC & AFROTC

    I am a HS senior and I want to fly in the military. To keep things simple I know that the Marine Corps has PLC and you can get a guaranteed aviation contract. I also know it is possible to get selected as a pilot with AFROTC. Is it possible to be in both at the same time and choose one before I...
