    Hola, I am applying to the Air Force Academy for next year, and I am making considerable progress. So far I have recieved Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's Principle Nomination.

    Unfortunately, I have dyslexia. Dyslexia has never stopped me from doing anything before, and I saw no reason that this would be a problem, but on my DoDmerb I had to mention it.

    I am technically still in the Resource Specialist Program at my school, but I am also in extremely competitive classes and the only thing that could be considered an accomodation really is the fact that I have used the computer to write in class essays, something that would have absolutely no effect of me at the Academy I believe.

    Also, I am an NHS Tutor, and I spend time in the resource center helping kids with Learning Disabilities.

    Is this likely to make it impossible for me to attend the academy? I've got everything else in control.
