Not necessarily related to the academy but similar. Essentially I am currently in college (Cornell University) and am considering the Air Force post graduation. I'm legitimately interested in being a fighter pilot but since I'm not at the academy and am not in the ROTC on campus, as far as I can tell I would have to go to OTS for the nine week program and go from there. If anyone could provide some color on how many people the OTS takes and out of those who gets a fighter assignment that would be much appreciated. Also, timeline wise, I graduate spring 2019 so loosely how long after that would I be on a deployment if (I realize thats a big if) everything goes smoothly?
