Hello all! Just have a question... or two... or three about being admitted to the prep school. I have already submitted the AF Form 1786 (I'm an enlisted airman) and been deemed a "candidate" on my status page (about 2 weeks ago). On the 1786, I opted to apply for the prep school over a direct appointment. First question: Considering the history of the prep school, are airman looked at "first" for admission? Second question: My SAT scores are above the qualifying guidelines for the Prep School (according to the LEAD handbook), however I want to retake the SAT. If I were to take it again on January 26th, do you think they'd make it to the Academy in time? Third question (possibly unanswerable): When are airman usually notified if they received an appointment? Also, when does the board meet for the prep school? Thanks!
