While I'm pretty sure a quick answer exists, something on the USAFA web site confuses me about how the selection of a major can influence ADSC slots. As you can see on the USAFA website: https://www.usafa.edu/academic/aeronautical-engineering/ the description of the aero engineer major also includes a list of 3 "potential job assignments" (11X, 62E, and 63X). Despite this description, I'm assuming that any aero engineer major can also bid for other ADSCs as well. (Again, I understand that the "needs of Big Blue" trump anything and everything.) By contrast, the systems engineer major description page includes far more ADSCs (including RPA pilot--18X). I take it that an otherwise pilot-qualified candidate can't strategically "avoid" the "threat" of receiving an RPA slot by majoring in aero rather than systems engineering and I'm assuming that I'm simply misunderstanding the USAFA majors pages.
