*Note: I am not USAFA hopeful, I am USAFA_hopeful. A coincidence...an unlikely one, I know, but I'm a different person Hi; my situation is a little wierd, I guess, but I would like some advice: I graduated high school in 2007. I applied to USAFA and received a nomination (but not yet an appointment). I was almost done with the entire application, and after long thinking, decided not to go through with it, as I didn't feel like I was up to making that big of a decision at the time. So, I never really received word as to whether I would have gotten an appointment or not. I have completed my first year of college and am entering my second, but I can't get USAFA out of my mind. I would really like to reapply, and feel like I am ready to make the commitment this time, should I receive an appointment. My grades in high school were very good, including standardized tests (I'm National Merit), and had a lot of extracurricular activities and leadership positions. I am an Eagle Scout and also was/is in Civil Air Patrol. My grades in college have been fairly good as well (I have a 3.67 gpa) and I have already taken leadership roles at the University level in extracurriculars. So, my question is A) how rare is it for someone to enter after starting college (even 2 years)? B) i'm not awfully bad, but i'm not very in shape either. Do I have sufficient time to train for CFA for candidacy for the class of 2013 C) how will the application process differ from someone straight out of high school? (i.e. I remember having to get a writing sample from an English teacher etc. or something like that) D) I have a deviated septum (nose injury). Last time I had to get a second evaluation for that, but I had already decided not to go through with it before I did it. Am I likely to be rejected? E) Is this even possible for class of 2013 at this point in time? (I have a knack for deciding last minute, unfortunately. I scrambled for everything last time around September So, compared to last time, I guess I'm getting an "early" start haha). Sorry for the long post and numerous questions. I've read a billion threads to get as much info as possible, but I'm still full of questions! Any help is amazingly appreciated.
