Hello everyone, I'm a sophomore and was recently admitted to the hospital and was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. Every source has told me that no diabetic kids have ever been accepted to a service academy. Ever since I was a little guy I've wanted to be a pilot in the Air Force and then become an astronaut. I believe I'm on my way to becoming a well qualified applicant. I've already researched other career paths and am excited about my findings. However, I just want to access the best resource I know of to be sure. Anyways, everyone has been great. I've been posting and reading on this site for about 2 years now (definitely a wealth of information to any applicant or parent). Any information helps and good luck to other future cadets out there.
