I am an enlisted AF Reservist and have completed my application for class of 2025 through the LEAD Program. I received a military nomination through my commander, because I decided to apply after all the other nomination sources deadlines were already past. I have seen on many forums and websites that prior enlisted usually get offered the prep school over direct appointment to USAFA, due to being out of school for a bit, only 85 slots per year, etc. Does anyone know if that is true or had any experience with it? I know it is also based on leadership, grades, and being a competitive applicant, but I am just curious generally.
