I was and am under the imression that the Air Force Academy is the better choice for those looking to get a pilot slot, since a significant number of cadets go into flight careers. But, I just recently talked to someone from AFROTC, and he stated that AFROTC was an equal or better path to take when trying to get a pilot slot. This was his reasoning, he acknowledged that when competing for a slot in the AFROTC you are competing against a larger number of people, but he believed that the level of competition was far less, and it was easier to stand out when compared to the less qualified. He did recognize the Academy's high out put of pilots, but also made the point that you are competing witht the best of the best. So if offered an appointment to the AFA vs. a scholarship to a prestigious AFROTC program (EX: Perdue AFROTC) what would be the the best pass if UTP is the goal?
