Hey guys I just had a question. I just finished my freshman year of high school with a 4.0 (no honors, however thats changing my softmore year il have honors classes there) and student council, NJHS member, and rowing as my sport and i have lots of community service through my church, and i plan on continuing this and expanding my positives throughout high school. i want to gain admittance to the Academy more than anything. this past year I was in my school's AF JROTC. at the end of the year I believe i was a SSgt. I understand that it looks good and everything and it definitely doesnt hurt to gain admittance to USAFA. however, do I really need it? All that i took from it this year is that the whole JROTC is sort of a joke, just a class and teaches you nothing about military except how to march maybe. I really dont like it, at all. I dont want to be in it. So my question is, Do i absolutely need JROTC to get into the Academy if everything else is going well? thanks for your answers and help.
