    Congratulations...nice tickets .
    Is USNA your first choice ? (Judging from screen name, I would suspect not..but you know what happens when you assume).
    If not your first choice, I would be curious why not,
    Nothing wrong with USAF, its an honorable alternative to serving in the military :) but Navy gives more options if you are unable to fly.

    My legal address in Colorado; however, I attend my military school in Salina, Kansas. I received my dual citizenship because of my mother's citizenship.

    USAFA is my first choice; however, I want to be a pilot, and I have no problem flying in the Navy. Like you said, USNA offers tons of opportunities (Marine Corps commissioning, etc.), so I have some options down the road.

    Yes...my entire USAFA application was completed and submitted on the 30th of Oct. I've completed an interview with my congressman's office (CO District 6) and one of my senator's office. I still have one senate interview to do.
