Hey, guys! I'm currently an enlisted DEPer. I was recently told about the LEAD program that allows enlisted airmen to apply for an appointment to the Academy/Prep School. Prior to enlisting, I was a college student. However, I had a time-consuming job and didn't take school too seriously, so my GPA suffered. In high school, I was a foreign exchange student during the year I would have applied to the academy had I not exchanged. My questions are: Will my poor college GPA hurt my chances at earning a LEAD spot? What can I do after tech school to be competitive? How difficult is it to get a LEAD spot? Thank you in advance!
